VTN doesn't forwarding between switches link.

Hi, opendaylight people.

I trying some tutorial by VTN.

Used follow softwares:

  • CentOS7-1503
  • distribution-karaf-0.3.0-Lithium
  • mininet 2.2.1
  • openvswitch-2.1.2-2.el7.centos.1.x86_64

VTN install on karaf, and run the mininet topology. Reference this page (, and read as VTN Manager instead of VTN Coordinator.

  1. VTN install

Please check the vtn-inventory whether the interconnects have been discovered by vtn-manager or not. You can check the inventory from dlux also. please fun feature:install odl-dlux-all and then access http://<odl_ip>:8181/index.html, Login to dlux and check topology. </odl_ip>

Please restart mininet and try once. We have this tested multiple times, this patch fault may be intermittent.
