quantum openvswitch plugin problem

asked 2013-05-22 15:32:33 -0600


I've been searching a sollution for the error: ERROR [quantum.plugins.openvswitch.agent.ovs_quantum_agent] Failed to create OVS patch port. Cannot have tunneling enabled on this agent, since this version of OVS does not support tunnels or patch ports. Agent terminated!

but I get the impression that most of the people who has this problem is using Ubuntu 12.10.

My setup is 1 network node + 2 compute nodes. This problem is only present in one of the compute nodes, the other one seems to be fine. I'm using the same configuration in both compute nodes.

Can anyone help?

to create a patch port, we need kernel module to support it. maybe you have upgraded your kernel version, in this case, we have to reinstall the openvswitch data path package.

What version of ovs do you use? Can you manually add patch port with the ovs-vsctl?

Try this:

apt-get remove linux-headers* linux-image* apt-get install linux-headers-3.2.0-52-generic linux-image-3.2.0-52-generic apt-get install sudo apt-get install openvswitch-datapath-dkms

And restart your network node and compute nodes.
