NAME
       ovn-controller-vtep  -  Open  Virtual Network local controller for vtep
       enabled physical switches.

SYNOPSIS
       ovn-controller-vtep   [options]   [--vtep-db=vtep-database]   [--ovnsb-
       db=ovnsb-database]

DESCRIPTION
       ovn-controller-vtep  is  the  local  controller daemon in OVN, the Open
       Virtual Network, for VTEP enabled physical switches.  It connects up to
       the  OVN  Southbound  database (see ovn-sb(5)) over the OVSDB protocol,
       and down to the VTEP database (see vtep(5)) over the OVSDB protocol.

CONFIGURATION
       ovn-controller-vtep retrieves its configuration information  from  both
       the  ovnsb  and  the  vtep database.  If the database locations are not
       given from command line, the default is the db.sock  in  local  OVSDB’s
       ’run’  directory.  The datapath location must take one of the following
       forms:

              ·      ssl:ip:port

                     The specified SSL port on the host at the given ip, which
                     must  be  expressed  as an IP address (not a DNS name) in
                     IPv4 or IPv6 address format.  If ip is an  IPv6  address,
                     then  wrap ip with square brackets, e.g.: ssl:[::1]:6640.
                     The --private-key, --certificate and either of  --ca-cert
                     or  --bootstrap-ca-cert  options  are mandatory when this
                     form is used.

              ·      tcp:ip:port

                     Connect to the given TCP port on ip, where ip can be IPv4
                     or  IPv6  address. If ip is an IPv6 address, then wrap ip
                     with square brackets, e.g.: tcp:[::1]:6640.

              ·      unix:file

                     On POSIX, connect to the Unix domain server socket  named
                     file.

                     On  Windows,  connect to a localhost TCP port whose value
                     is written in file.
