Minutes of IPv6 Project Meeting on December 18, 2015

  • Date and Time: PST 8:00am / UTC 16:00, Friday December 18, 2015
  • Chair: Bin Hu (AT&T)
  • Participants:
    • Sridhar Gaddam (RedHat)

Bin and Sridhar looked into those deployment scenarios, common configuration files, and testing scenarios of B release. Those common configuration files are for the setup of infrastructure for installers, and irrelevant of our service VM setup of IPv6.

From deployment scenario perspective, IPv6 needs an option of enabling neutron-l3-agent, and disabling odl-l3 after installation. Bin will follow up with Genesis team (Weidong was assigned to take care of GENESIS-72).

From testing perspective, Weidong's team is also working on deploying IPv6 in Huawei's lab, and develop Yardstick tests.

Action for Bin: follow up with Weidong and Genesis for the option of enabling neutron-l3-agent, and disabling odl-l3 after installation. Bin also asks for the details of what configurations are needed.

Action for Sridhar: also look into what changes are needed, and can be done manually to enable neutron-l3 and disable odl-l3 after installation, e.g. /etc/neutron/neutron.conf. Current local.conf only works for devstack. Note that there may be more changes and more complicated, and Bin need to get more information from Installer teams when Bin follows up with them.

Sridhar's bug fix was accepted and merged in mainline, but Lithium SR3 was shipped on Dec 3, and didn't pick up the bug fix in time. SR4 is scheduled on March 3, 2016, while Beryllium is scheduled in February.

Sridhar will ask ODL team if there is a stable nightly build with this bug so that we can try. This will saves us lots of manual configuration steps.

Sridhar also mentioned that he will get involved more and more in ODL in addition to OpenStack.

Action for Sridhar: ask ODL team and find the nightly build URL if any

Bin started to create the documentation. It is in progress. Sridhar suggested to have 2 sets:
- One for complete setup guide, including installing OpenStack using devstack, and installing ODL
- One for B release, based on the assumption that OpenStack and ODL have been installed by installers.

Sridhar also indicated that at Step 4: Creating Networks and Subnets, the need of adding an ipv6 route which points to the eth0 interface of vRouter can be automated by enabling it in eth0 in metadata. Sridhar will update relevant instructions.

Action for Sridhar: Update the instruction.

Action for Bin: continue and complete the documentation

  • Testing Status

Kubi from Huawei is working on deploying IPv6 in Huawei's lab. Sridhar and Bin are providing support t Kubi for troubleshooting. Once setup is complete, testing can be continued.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Meeting adjourned.
