IRC Log:

  • Roll call

Bin, Prakash and Sridhar reviewed JIRA issues and discussed the status update of E Release:

  • Underlay IPv6 (Epic IPVSIX-45)
    • Apex Improvement: IPv6 support in OVS VxLAN (and/or GRE) tunnel endpoints with OVS 2.6+
      • APEX-443
      • Apex team has completed it in Danube 3.0.
      • Bin tagged our repo for Danube 3.0 , and Danube 3.0 was released on July 14.
    • Compass Installer Support:
      • COMPASS-546
      • Deferred to F Release. But if Compass team can complete it in 5.2.0 or 5.3.0, everyone will be happier.
    • Underlay Testing for ODL API endpoints (For Future Release)
      • ODL is not interested in supporting underlay IPv6. Their current focus is on Inter data center, external connectivity using BGP VPN in ODL for tenant network (overlay) only.
      • This is dropped for future release
  • Overlay IPv6 Gaps in ODL (Epic JIRA-47)
    • IPv6 Router Support – external routing (north-south)
      • Sridhar will focus on external routing.

    • ODL on IPv6 only infrastructure (deferred for future release)

      • ODL is not interested in supporting underlay IPv6.
      • This feature is deferred for future release.
    • VxLAN tunnel with IPv6 endpoints
      • Sridhar indicated that the dependencies are:
        • OVS 2.6+ - it is already available
        • Test Cases in ODL to validate the feature support in ODL - this is some work needed in ODL
        • Installer ability to properly configure it - Apex supports it

Prakash introduced it in details. Bin and Sridhar will look further and have deeper discussion in next meeting.

  • AOB (Agenda Item)


Meeting adjourned.
