Re: How to configure pod network manually

Hi Clayton,

Thanks for your reply. So if I want to use SDN plugin, I must install openvswitch manually, on master and nodes. 

In openshift ansible project, I've noticed a reference to the "openshift/openvswitch" image. This image seems to be used to install a containerized version of openvswitch. Is this installation path being working ?

Just to make sure, here what I will do:
1. I will define a value for networkPluginName in master-config.yaml and node-config.yaml (of all nodes)
2. I will install openvswitch on master and node.
3. Restart everything.

On other thought, I'm installing on bare metal, would it be easier to install flannel ? I've read it's supported by an openstack installation. But I guess nothing stop me from using it on bare metal.

OpenShift includes the SDN plugin implementation as part of "openshift start node".  The docker image for openshift/node (in images/node) and the Ansible installer both rely on the RPM to set up the proper files in the CNI directories, and then OpenShift autodetects the SDN plugin.  OVS today is installed on the host, which is the only requirement.

In a future release, both SDN and OVS will move to a daemon set and be installed on top of the cluster, and the openshift node process will stop launching SDN.

In attempt to learn more about how openshift is working, I'm trying to install it manually. So far, I manage to create a master and multiple nodes. Scheduling on node is working. But I'm struggling to get the pod network in place.   With kubernetes, we usually load a yaml for flannel or calico. Is their something similar for openshift?

Some how, I'm expecting a daemonset for openvswitch, but I only found the one here, but it seams improperly configure: https://github.com/openshift/origin/tree/master/contrib/kubernetes/static

On other though, I tried to configure the networkPluginName, but it does provide the expected result...

Thank for helping !
