Docker with openvswitch on ubuntu

Hi everyone, thanks in advance for any help you can provide on this.

I was following the steps for using openvswitch plugin as docker network, as listed in the openvswitch site and could not get it to work.

The same steps worked on the first try when running on a CentOS VM which I used for comparison. I have used consul as suggested in the instructions, with

consul agent -dev

in both cases

The problem appears to be that, although the configuration is saved in a permanent way (can get it with

ovs-vsctl get ... 

running systemctl shows that the remote:tcp… setting is never used.

I have had a look in the scripts under /usr/share/openvswitch/scripts/ and from a first look, it doesn’t appear to care for that configuration, instead using hardcoded values.

Any and all help will be most appreciated.

Regards, Constantinos
