We have trying to create a SFC using Openstack Mitaka and ODL Boron.

But we are facing connectivity issue after upgrading the ovs version to 2.5.9 and making it nsh aware.

Setup Details :-

• Openstack Mitaka • Kernel version - 3.19.0-69-generic

Initially we had ovs version 2.5.0 installed on the machine.

In order to upgrade ovs and make it nsh aware, we have followed the following steps as per the link :-

• Deleted all the bridges and assigned the IP to the eth0 and eth1 ports. • git clone patches.git • git clone • git reset --hard 7d433ae57ebb90cd68e8fa948a096f619ac4e2d8 • cp ../ovs nshpatches/ .patch ./ • git clone • cd ovs • git reset --hard 7d433ae57ebb90cd68e8fa948a096f619ac4e2d8 • cp ../ovs_nsh_patches/ .patch ./ • git config --global "" • git am *.patch • apt-get install build-essential fakeroot • dpkg-checkbuilddeps (to check the dependencies) • apt-get install graphviz autoconf automake automake1.10 debhelper dh-autoreconf libssl-dev libtool python-all python-twisted-conch (install all the dependencies) • dpkg-checkbuilddeps (empty output) • DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS='parallel=8 nocheck' fakeroot debian/rules binary • cd ../ • dpkg -i openvswitch-common2.5.90-1amd64.deb • dpkg -i openvswitch-switch2.5.90-1amd64.deb

ovs version 2.5.9 is shown in ovs-vsctl show.

Now, bridges are created and IP is assigned on them.

On Controller/Network Node :-

• ifconfig eth1 0 promisc up • ifconfig br-vlan netmask up • ifconfig eth0 0 promisc up • ifconfig br-ex netmask up • route add default gw dev br-ex

On Compute Node :- • ifconfig eth1 0 promisc up • ifconfig br-vlan netmask up

After all this execution, the connectivity between the bridges got broken and there was no ping response

root@Controller-New:~# ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. From icmpseq=9 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=10 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=11 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=12 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=13 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=14 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=15 Destination Host Unreachable From icmpseq=16 Destination Host Unreachable From icmp_seq=17 Destination Host Unreachable

--- ping statistics --- 18 packets transmitted, 0 received, +9 errors, 100% packet loss, time 17103ms pipe 3

However in order to confirm the issue, we reverted back the ovs version to 2.5.0.

After rebuilding, the ping between the bridges was successful and there was no connectivity break down.

The connectivity issue again came after building ovs 2.5.9 with nsh.

We are suspecting some issue in ... (more)
