TLS for VSC Connections to Forwarding Plane

By default, MetroAE will establish TLS OpenFlow channels from the VSCs to the forwarding-plane components, VRS and NSGv. TLS is required for NSGV/VNS, but not for VRS/VCS. In order to turn off TLS for your data-center VCS deployment, you would edit the following parameter in common.yml in your Croxley deployment:

# < Secure Communication >
# Flag to indicate when secure communications via TLS will be used between components; default is True. If VRS is defined, target_server_password needs to be defined in credentials file
# secure_communication: True

Uncomment the variable and set it to False. This will configure the VSC OpenFlow channel as non-TLS for VRS communications.
