I am using ODL controller in one of my usecase to control 2 OVS switches. I am trying to ping host/instance running on one switch from the other switch. I am able to ping hosts until I install these ODL features "feature:install odl-dlux-core odl-dlux-all odl-restconf-all", but once I install ping is not working. However when I try the same scenario with mininet (i.e OVS and hosts are provided by mininet), ping is working fine i.e I am able to ping between hosts, But when I try this in OpenStack environment, I am not able to ping between the instances. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

@ArunKumarAV I think, you didn't install the feature odl-l2switch. Install this feature and try to ping the host

opendaylight-user@root>feature:install odl-l2switch-all

For the more detail you can follow the following wiki:

Hi Subash apologies for the delayed reply and thanks for the answer. I have tried installing odl-l2switch-all feature as well. It has not helped me any way and problem still persists. When I start a new instance in OpenStack Horizon, in instance log file I am able to see "Sending discover" message, after this its not progressing. I am using ODL 0.3 lithium karaf with above mentioned features i.e. dlux,restconf,l2switch installed. Let me know if you need any particular information

@Arun_Kumar_AV could you check the installed flows in the ODL,I don't have much idea in openstack environment.
