How to create tables into ovs_quantum database ?

I'm using Ubuntu Testing Folsom Packages [1] with Quantum-server with OVS plugin.

Both the agent & server are running, but it seems that they did not create the tables into the DB.

My ovs_quantum_plugin.ini is correct and the user / password / privileges too.

What's wrong ? I could remember with Essex it was created the first time I ran the agent.

nothing has changed here from essex to my knowledge, so the behavior should be the same.

Thank's Dan, I guess I'm running a wrong configuration of the agent.

I let the thread open in case of I'm success to do it.

Hi Emilien,

I had the same problem.

Question 207960 mentions that two config files are needed for each Quantum service. The problem is that the stock init script for quantum-server only has one config file specified.

I edited /etc/init/quantum-server.conf and added "--config-file /etc/quantum/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_quantum_plugin.ini" to the end of the start-stop-daemon line. Upon restarting the quantum-server service, the tables were created.

I would imagine that the Ubuntu packages need modified for a permanent fix.

Thanks, Joe
