This document provides the users with installation guidelines to create a Service VM as an IPv6 vRouter in OPNFV environment, i.e. integrated OpenStack with Open Daylight environment. There are three scenarios.

  • Scenario 1 is pre-OPNFV environment, i.e. a native OpenStack environment without Open Daylight Controller.
  • Scenario 2 is an OPNFV environment where OpenStack is integrated with Open Daylight Official Lithium Release. In this setup we use ODL for “Layer 2 connectivity” and Neutron L3 agent for “Layer 3 routing”. Because of a bug, which got fixed recently and is not part of ODL SR3, we will have to manually execute certain commands to simulate an external IPv6 Router in this setup.
  • Scenario 3 is similar to Scenario 2. However, we use an Open Daylight Lithium controller which is built from the latest stable/Lithium branch which includes the fix. In this scenario, we can fully automate the setup similar to Scenario 1.
