Bug Description

This bug is actually a feature request.

In current implementation, L2 Gateway Agent initiates a connection to the OVSDB Server.
A configurable option is needed so that the connection can be initiated in reverse order - i.e. OVSDB sever should be able to initiate the connection to L2GW agent. A configuration knob can be added to the .ini file which specifies that the operator wants OVSDB server to initiate the connection - in this case, the address to the OVSDB server will not be specified in the .ini file.

I spoke with Maruti and Selvakumar about the details of the implementation of this in Vancouver.

    ovsdb server connection initiation implementation

    ovsdb server initiates the connection to l2gw agent with the entries in
    manager table in ovsdb hardware vtep schema.
    A configurable option 'enable_manager' in .ini file is provided so that
    the connection can be initiated by the ovsdb server or not based on boolean
    By default 'enable_manager' value is False, turn on the variable to True
    to initiate the connection from ovsdb server to l2gw agent.
