Assign interfaces to be managed by the controller

In a VTEP, explicitly assign interfaces for an OVSDB controller to manage.

Before you assign the interface, consider the following:

  • The interface must be in Switchport Trunk mode.
  • The interface must not be a member of any VLAN
  • The interface must not be a member of a port-channel

When the above conditions are not met when assigning the interfaces to be managed by the controller, the system returns error messages.

When the interface is assigned, you cannot:

  • remove the interface from Switchport Trunk mode
  • add the interface as a member of any VLAN
  • remove the interface from the controller configuration if the interface has active port-scoped VLAN (Port,VLAN) pairs configured by the controller

To assign an interface to be managed by the OVSDB controller:

  1. Configure an interface from CONFIGURATION mode.
    OS10(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1
  2. Configure L2 trunking in INTERFACE mode.
    OS10(config-if-eth1/1/1)# switchport mode trunk
  3. Configure the access VLAN assigned to a L2 trunk port in the INTERFACE mode.
    OS10(config-if-eth1/1/1)# no switchport access vlan
  4. Assign the interface to the controller.
    OS10(config-if-eth1/1/1)# nve-controller

To view the controller information and the ports the controller manages, use the show nve controller command.

OS10# show nve controller
