I have had a theory, but haven't had the time to test. what is your switch ID? (i believe it may only be an issue when using a switch with an large Id number)

I'm not sure, but it may be related to this bug:

Yeah, I have the same problem, from the dlux page when I try to create a flow I can't because there are no nodes to select. I did not find a solution yet.

I'm also facing the same issue, but i have deployed AD-SAL application on helium controller. Able to see topology on GUI but could not install/add flows.

Yes, I have also the same problem. Maybe the only solution is to add flow through the Rest API.

Hey! Did you guys figure out the way to add the flows? I have asked a similar question here.

Any inputs will be greatly appreciated :) Thanks

Can you see if it has a large number for the openflow ID and see if the Bug ID 2190 has been fixed and patched?

Chris O'Shea ( 2015-03-14 18:44:03 -0700 )edit

In the topology I see the openflow switch ID as openflow:1 and in connection manager the same is shown as 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:01

Hi Chris, I am not sure how to check if the Bug ID 2190 has been fixed. From my previous comment does that look like its fixed?

pm.preetam ( 2015-03-16 02:15:15 -0700 )edit

even I see the openflow switch ID as openflow:1 but m not able to see anything in connection manager.

Same problem here. I am able to see the switches in connection manager but unable to add flows through the flowprogrammer tab.
