Hi, Can you help me with the null pointer exception that I get while logging into the controller gui ? I do the following:

  1. Installed the latest pre-built opendaylight controller distribution from the following link:$distribution.opendaylight/

  2. Started the controller through opendaylight/ script. The server starts with many exceptions in the back ground. I wait for few minutes and then open the browser and access http://localhost:8080/ , the login page opens fine.

  3. But when I login with admin/admin, I get the following null pointer exception on the webpage: java.lang.NullPointerException org.opendaylight.controller.usermanager.internal.UserManager.authenticate( org.apache.catalina.authenticator.FormAuthenticator.authenticate( org.apache.catalina.authenticator.AuthenticatorBase.invoke( org.apache.catalina.valves.ErrorReportValve.invoke( org.opendaylight.controller.filtervalve.cors.FilterValve$1.doFilter( org.opendaylight.controller.filtervalve.cors.model.FilterProcessor.process( org.opendaylight.controller.filtervalve.cors.FilterValve.invoke( org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve.invoke( org.apache.catalina.authenticator.SingleSignOn.invoke( org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteAdapter.service( org.apache.coyote.http11.AbstractHttp11Processor.process( org.apache.coyote.AbstractProtocol$AbstractConnectionHandler.process($ java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker( java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$

Regards, Avneesh

I don't believe anyone is supporting the GUI in the controller project most of the development work for the GUI has been done in the DLUX project. I hurry recommend just getting the latest build from integration that will have all the project brought in.
