Re: [nv-l] ITSA  unset L2 Status

When ITSA 1.3 is installed with your NetView, you should find that if
you drill down into each switch then there is an extra icon alongside
the management interface, that is labelled Layer2Status.  This matches
with the "L2 Status" column from your ovtopodump output.

The slightly odd thing is that, until the L2 status of a switch changes
(because something gets disconnected), the default status is "Unset" and
the colour of the icon is blue (Unknown).  This is apparently working as
designed.  When a L2 event occurs, the status will change to Normal /
Marginal / Critical depending on what happened.
