1.1.3. Important Notes

Attention: Please be aware that:

  • Since Danube, Apex Installer no longer supports Open Daylight L2-only environment or odl-ovsdb-openstack. Instead, it supports Open Daylight L3 deployment with odl-netvirt-openstack.
  • IPv6 features are not fully supported in Open Daylight L3 with odl-netvirt-openstack yet. It is still a work in progress.
  • Thus we cannot realize Service VM as an IPv6 vRouter using Apex Installer under OpenStack + Open Daylight L3 with odl-netvirt-openstack environment.

For details, please refer to our User Guide.
