Working with Hybrid Mode Switches

Working with hybrid mode switches, may mean that you need to restrict vlan ranges or change the vlan where discovery happens. Most restrictions exist in the Admin Section -> Networking tab.  Click on a node to set its restrictions.  For example if you have protected vlans 20-30 for non-openflow use, you will want to change the vlan range on the nodes to 1-19,31-4095.  If a switch does not support untagged when in hybrid mode, the discovery vlan can be set by editing the /etc/oess/database.xml file and adding <discovery_vlan>XXX</discovery_vlan> to the configuration.  Once this is done restart OESS for this change to take effect.
