Bug Description

When SDN controller configuration for ml2 plugin with URL(OVS) is getting invalid command error.

Brief Description
After setup configuration (config_controller is applied successfully) to configure SDN parameters is getting failed.For ml2 plugin with the URL(OVS) of the SDN controller.

So I need to create SDN controller with OVS and if I miss something, please suggest steps for configuring and adding SDN controller.

Provide the severity of the defect.
<Minor: System/Feature is usable with minor issue>

Steps to Reproduce
OVS: Open VSwitch
1. After Setup completion(Run config_controller with --config-file option and .ini file)
2. login into active controller
3. Configure the Neutron ml2 driver. – Working fine
 >> system service-parameter-add network ml2 mechanism_drivers="openvswitch,sriovnicswitch,opendaylight"

4. Configure ml2 plugin with the URL of the SDN controller- Command Failed
 >> system service-parameter-add network ml2_ovs url==

ERROR: Invalid service section ml2_ovs.

When using ODL configuration
ODL: Open Day Light, It is working as expected, but failed on adding into SDN controller.
         >>system service-parameter-add network ml2 mechanism_drivers="openvswitch,sriovnicswitch,opendaylight"
 >>system service-parameter-add network ml2_odl url=

 >>system service-parameter-add network ml2_odl username=admin
 >>system service-parameter-add network ml2_odl password=********

 >>system service-parameter-add network default service_plugins=networking_odl.l3.l3_odl.OpenDaylightL3RouterPlugin

 >>>system sdn-controller-add -a -p 8080 -t TCP --state enable

ERROR: SDN configuration is not enabled.

Expected Behavior
1. Configuring SDN Controller Connection Parameters successfully with Open vSwitch (OVS)
2. Adding an SDN Controller using the CLI should completed successfully


System Configuration
Duplex, MN-Local

StarlingX hasn't verified the integration for SDN. There are currently no plans to work on this as it's not a priority for the project at this time.

If this is important, please propose a feature to track this integration to the TSC.

Changed in starlingx:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
importance: Wishlist → Low
status: New → Triaged
