Description Tim Rozet 2017-10-05 16:15:48 UTC
Description of problem:
ODL will listen on for websocket connections (port 8185) and there is no way to configure an IP for it to bind to.  This is unsafe and also doesn't allow haproxy to bind to the port for the ODL VIP.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Carbon and later

The only workaround is to disable port status and websocket in networking-odl until this is fixed.

I do not believe this requires documentation as triple-o configures this without user interaction of any kind.
