ODL-OVS not listening on 6640

asked 2015-08-25 09:30:50 -0700

anonymous user



Is there an ODL Karaf feature that makes ODL listen on port 6640. I have installed ODL Lithium and manually installed openvswitch on Ubuntu 14.04.02 and installed some DLUX features - odl-restconf, odl-mdsal-apidocs, odl-dlux-core - but ODL is only listening on ports 6633, 6653.

I have also tried to get the ODL vm to listen on port 6640 by setting the ovs manager to passive - sudo ovs-vsctl set manager ptcp:6640 - and active - sudo ovs-vsctl set manager tcp: - but nothing seems to work?

Any ideas what might be wrong with my set up?

You need the odl-ovsdb-southbound-impl feature. That feature will load the ovsdb lib to listen on 6640. Using odl-ovsdb-southbound-impl-ui will also load the restconf piece along with the impl.

odl-ovsdb-openstack will load the above features, but also loads the network virtualization features.

Install only odl-ovsdb-openstack feature in the controller. This feature will internally install restconf and dlux features. Execute the below URL to check, if the controller can accept connections on port 6640. http://<controller_ip>:8080/restconf/operational/network-topology:network-topology/topology/netvirt:1 Sample Response: <topology xmlns="urn:TBD:params:xml:ns:yang:network-topology"> <topology-id>netvirt:1</topology-id> </topology> Please install openvswitch with version 2.3.1
