restconf / netconf - Mount point does not exist

New to SDN/Opendaylight and am trying to get a node added using netconf.

I have the XML added into a file called netconfpush which I got from here:

I can ssh to the device from the controller, and call the netconf sub-system successfully (I get the hello message).

This is the POST I am sending (from the controller itself):

curl -X POST --header "Accept:application/xml" --header "Content-Type:application/xml" --data @netconfpush http://admin:admin@

And this is the error message I get:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"
standalone="no"?> <errors
        <error-message>Mount point does not exist.</error-message>
    </error> </errors>

I think I found the solution. I was using the wrong URL for POST data.

This is the URL I used:

curl -X POST --header "Accept:application/xml" --header "Content-Type:application/xml" --data @netconfpush http://admin:admin@

I can now see my device listed in Nodes in DLUX.
