Getting Started with OpenDaylight OVSDB Plugin

Below are great links for understanding the OVSDB project. The first link is a tutorial describing the project, it's goals, features and architecture. The next link is a Youtube presentation covering the slides and demos. The demo links are to virtualBox OVA files that contain everything you need to easily bring up a two node OpenStack and OpenDaylight deployment - simply import the OVA and fire them up. The slides also describe how to use the OVA, run the demo and how to debug. The allinone links install and start OpenDaylight automatically. The external link uses OpenDaylight externally on the host and assumes ODL is reachable at

Note If VirtualBox complains about the fourth VM Network Adapter when you start the OVA image then go into the settings for the VM, select Network->Adapter 4->Advanced. Change the Adapter Type from Paravirtualized Network (virtio-net) to the type just above it. VB under Windows sometimes has issues with the fourth Network Adapter.

Note If you want to update to a later OpenStack or OpenDaylight release that what is already packaged in the OVS images above use the following link for notes on things to look for Demo Updates.

We are still in development adding new features all the time. We can use any contributions from developers to network persons, or anyone in between. Required are all contributions from upstream code to docs and tutorials. Take a look at the Getting Started links and jump on #opendaylight-ovsdb on irc.freenode.net and start hacking!
