Re: [controller-dev] Netconf plugin testing

Reinaldo Penno <rapenno@...>

okay, there seems a confusion.

ODL has an internal Netconf server. This server is used for configuration of internal ODL stuff. 

In order to test the Netconf SB plug-in you need an _external_ Netconf server device - outside ODL. This can be a number of devices or a stand-alone daemon like netopeer running Netconf Server code.

Hi Reinaldo,

I believe netconf server will be started automatically after starting the controller. Here is the following lines called from config.ini. (Please correct me if I am wrong)
# Netconf startup configuration


netconf.ssh.port=1830 = ./configuration/

so, do you think I have to change the ip address, port#, which are defined at 02-libnetconfd.xml according to the one mentioned above? If not, can you please shed some light on this ? Sorry if this is a basic question.

Which device are you using as a netconf server? You have to substitute the IP address on the example by the IP address of your  netconf device. You need to make sure netconf is running on the device, etc.

Thanks Reinaldo. I actually took the latest controller from wget, created a file named "04-libnetconfd.xml" in opendaylight/configuration/initial

Then started the controller using of13 plugin, but I could not see any notification like this:

2014-02-12 04:42:10.043 PST [pool-23-thread-1] INFO  o.o.c.s.c.n.NetconfDevice#libnetconfd - Starting Netconf Client on: /

Am I doing something wrong?

If the file is correct, nothing else is needed and a netconf session will be established between ODL and netconf server (device)

I am interested in performing testing on netconf plugin. I have netconf server and just want to configure ODL. I have gone through the below links on how to test netconf plugin: and

If I understand correctly:

1. Should I need to configure yumapro-13.04. If yes, I found the documentation at I am trying hard to install yumapro-13.04 and can you point me the right link for installing the same.
2. Once done with the above step, I *think* I can go to this step and follow the sequence in order.

Does anybody worked on testing netconf plugin, so I need to ask the sequence to get familiar in testing netconf plugin.

Thanks in advance!
