There have already been a few great write ups of how to get OpenDaylight up and running. I referenced a few of them during my journey --- see links at bottom. This post also covers getting the controller installed, but I wanted to share some of the issues I ran into during the install process. It wasn’t 100% clean and smooth, but since I’m no expert in Linux, they were probably user errors. I hope this helps others out that go down this path and run into similar issues. I also run through some basics in Linux to aid others like myself that have been primarily users of Windows and the Cisco CLI.
