I deployed OPNFV Brahmaputra + tun + odl-l2 by using fuel. The deployment was successful. Health check also was ok. My problem is why linux bridge br-ex-ln and br-fw-admin are not be created after rebooting one controller node. I found the same problem on two controller nodes of my env. How to troubleshoot this problem? Look forward to your reply.Thank you!

Hi, could you please verify if inside /etc/network/interfaces.d/ directory ifcfg-br-ex-lnx and ifcfg-br-fw-admin files exist and contain definitions of theses bridges?

Thanks for your reply. I deployed my env again yesterday. The problem still exist. A little differencs is only br-fw-admin not created. According to your comments, I check /etc/network/interfaces.d/ directory. The file ifcfg-fw-admin exists.The returns of "brctl show" don't include br-fw-admin.

Is there any logs I can check? If yes, could I send the logs to you by email? Thanks!

Could you share content of ifcfg-br-fw-admin and ifcfg-br-ex-lnx files on some pastebin site? Output from 'hiera network_scheme' cmd can be also useful. Please also check if /var/log/upstart/network-interface-br-fw-admin.log file contain any information about problems with bringing up this bridge.

I send a email to you. There is a log which include content you mentioned. I also attach a screen capture when the node is powering on after reboot. There is a warning shown: unkonw attribute class/net/br-ex-lnx/queues/rx-0/rps_cpus; unkonw attribute class/net/br-ex-lnx/queues/tx-0/rps_cpus.

In this deployment bonded interface is used for Public network. In that case bonded interface was assigned to br-ex ovs bridge but supposed to be added to br-ex-lnx linux bridge. This commit should change this behavior:

This change will be cherry-picked to 8.0 branch of fuel opendaylight plugin so it will be possible to build plugin with this fix included. To patch already installed plugin you can edit /var/www/nailgun/plugins/opendaylight-0.8/deployment_scripts/puppet/modules/opendaylight/lib/puppet/parser/functions/odl_network_scheme.rb file on fuel master according to above change and redeploy environment.

Please check if after applying this patch you still observe problems.

Thanks! This solution worked. :) The odl_network_scheme.rb on local is a little different from yours. I only add the code "transformations.each { |action| action['bridge'] = 'br-ex-lnx' if (action['action'] == 'add-bond' and action['bridge'] == 'br-ex') }".
