Hi All,

I'm not able to connect ODL from OpenVSwitch.

I have started ODL with of.address & of.port in the config.ini as, of.listenPort=6633 of.address = [controller IP]

I have configured the manager and controller in OVS as :

ovs-vsctl show output is :

root@vm1:/var/log/openvswitch# ovs-vsctl show 6038b00e-85f1-488f-ba35-394c48b4ae68 Manager "tcp:" isconnected: true Bridge br-tun Port patch-int Interface patch-int type: patch options: {peer=patch-tun} Port br-tun Interface br-tun type: internal Bridge br-mgmt Controller "tcp:" Port "eth1" Interface "eth1" Port br-mgmt Interface br-mgmt type: internal Port phy-br-mgmt Interface phy-br-mgmt type: patch options: {peer=int-br-mgmt} Bridge br-int Controller "tcp:" failmode: secure Port "tapce5c5b33-92" tag: 1 Interface "tapce5c5b33-92" type: internal Port patch-tun Interface patch-tun type: patch options: {peer=patch-int} Port br-int Interface br-int type: internal Port int-br-mgmt Interface int-br-mgmt type: patch options: {peer=phy-br-mgmt} Port "qvof3aeeaa6-48" tag: 1 Interface "qvof3aeeaa6-48" ovs_version: "2.0.2"

When I did a telnet as,

  1. Checked the ovsdb connection & is working fine root@vm1:/var/log/openvswitch# telnet 6640 Trying Connected to Escape character is '^]'. {"id":"28d9af23-9378-4a60-a218-8b895e48563f","method":"getschema","params":["OpenvSwitch"]}^] telnet> q Connection closed.

  2. Checked the OF connection which is failing root@vm1:/var/log/openvswitch# telnet 6633 Trying telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused root@vm1:/var/log/openvswitch#

When I checked the status of controller in controller table, the state is "BACKOFF":
