I have installed Openstack and integrated ODL (Lithium). I could login to the opendaylight GUI and could see the connections. Everything is successful but when i tried to start the client and it throws an exception

[root@node-22 bin]# ./client

Logging in as g:admingroup

976 [sshd-SshClient[2eb9eee9]-nio2-thread-1] WARN org.apache.sshd.client.session.ClientSessionImpl - Exception caught

I tried to run ./karaf but it didnt give any reponse.

Please advice how to add authentication in ODL. Thanks in advance!!!

If you are able to login to ODL GUI it means,you already have ODL running be it through client (after start) or directly running karaf. What's the issue, are you trying to run it again?

Thank you for your reply. I would like to login to Opendaylight CLI.

hey there.

in case you didnt find this out, when you run ./client , make sure you do "./client -u karaf" and you will see the "OPENDAYLIGHT" splash screen..

if you run /opt/opendaylight/bin/shell, you will only see the "KARAF" splash screen.

cheers, D
