Communication issue with Zodiac FX
« on: March 13, 2018, 05:24:29 AM »
Setup is as follows;

Two Zodiac FX switches. 
Z1 - p1-p2 are connected to raspberry pis.  P3 - Z2/P3. P4 connected to netgear switch.
Z2 - P3 - Z1/P3  P4 connected to netgear switch.

Z1 10.0.1.99/24
gateway 10.0.1.1
Controller 10.0.1.8

Z1 10.0.1.100/24
gateway 10.0.1.1
Controller 10.0.1.8

Pi1 - 10.0.1.44/24
Pi2 - 10.0.1.42/24

Controller is ONOS running on a Mac Mini which is also connected to netgear switch.

Problem 1; On the controller I can see both switches, but it does not recognize the z1-z2 connection on P3.  May be a controller thing, not sure.  Maybe I have the zodiacs misconfigured?  Anything I need to do to enable comms between them on P3?

Problem 2; I can't ping between the Pis.  I can disconnect them from the Zodiac and plug them into the netgear switch and I can ping them just fine.  All vlan config is the standard config that came on the switches.  Can't see the hosts on the ONOS controller either.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

All aforementioned problems were resolved by updating the firmware on the Zodiacs.
