[ovs-discuss] Hardware vtep manager table

Hi All,

I connected my hardware vtep(ovs 2.5.0) to controller. The controller
brings the connectivity as UP and sends down update for different

But in my hardware vtep, I don't see the is_connected field in Manager
table updated to true.

Manager table

_uuid                                inactivity_probe is_connected
max_backoff other_config status target
------------------------------------ ---------------- ------------
----------- ------------ ------ -------------------------
c1b23893-229f-4edf-ad7e-19c589679511 []               false        []
        {}           {}     "ssl:"
290d88fc-9238-47ed-bd46-8947492cdb89 []               false        []
        {}           {}     "ssl:"

Also, when I check the logs, I see the transition to IDLE and ACTIVE
happening continuously. Do we expect controller to send

some messages periodically? Any inputs?

I set only the target field in the Manager table. Is it necessary to
set other fields(inactivity_probe, max_backoff)?

when does is_connected field get set to true?
