Hi all,

I would like to build a sort of real testbed to use OpenStack with an ODL Controller.

I have few machine in which I have instelled respectively:

devstack1 -> OpendayLight + Openstack controller

devstack2 and devstack3 -> Compute nodes

ovs1 -> openvSwitch to connect the controller to the compute hosts.

First of all I have downloaded ODL and installed some component. After that I was able to access to the ODL dashboard. Than I have installed the Openstack controller with Devstack and the two compute hosts.

To prepare the local.conf file I've used this guide:

I could access to the devstack dashboard BUT I can't create new instaces in the compute hosts. Moreover I can not anymore access to the ODL controller dashboard.

For some reason I had to reboot the controller machine, I have done ./rejoin-stack to access again to OpenStack, but now I can't access to the dashboard

An error occurred authenticating. Please try again later.

or, after the authentication (source openrc admin admin), if I try to do, for example, nova list it gives me this error:

Authorization Failed: An unexpected error prevented the server from fulfilling your request: (OperationalError) (2003, "Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)") None None (Disable debug mode to suppress these details.) (HTTP 500)

BTW... I have also installed OVSwitch because I want that my controller is connected to the compute hosts through a "real" switch OpenFlow.

I've done:

sudo ovs-vsctl set-controller openflow tcp:*controllerIP*:6633

to set the connection to the controller, how to set the connection to the hosts?

Can you help me in some way? I need that this basic configuration works ASAP.
