Syntax Description

schema OVSDB schema.
hardware_vtep Specifies Hardware VXLAN Tunnel End-Point (VTEP).
add Add to the local OVSDB server.
delete Delete from the local OVSDB server.
connection Specifies OVSDB connection.
server Specifies to wait for incoming connections.
tcp Specifies unencrypted TCP connection to remote server.
ssl Specifies encrypted connection using SSL/TLS to remote server.
ipaddress local_ip Specifies IP address of local VLAN (Virtual LAN) to listen on (default is
port local_port Specifies TCP port number to listen on.



Usage Guidelines

You can configure the OVSDB server to listen for incoming connections from OVSDB controllers. A switch in factory default configuration does not listen on any local ports. The OVSDB server in ExtremeXOS listens for incoming connections from managers listed in the relevant manager tables of the OVSDB database being served. For example, if the manager table in the Hardware VTEP database has an entry for PTCP:6640, then ExtremXOS listens for connections on that port number.

When using SSL for OVSDB connections, an SSL certificate must be configured on ExtremeXOS. It is recommended that all CLI-configured OVSDB connections should be either client or server connections; client and server OVSDB connections should not be configured simultaneously.


The following example has OVSDB listen for incoming connections on TCP port 6640:
configure ovsdb schema hardware_vtep add connection server tcp port 6640
The following examples stops OVSDB from listening for incoming connections configured in the previous example:
configure ovsdb schema hardware_vtep delete connection server tcp port 6640


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS release 22.1.
