I Agree that GUI could be improve to change network online (if possible), both for ovs and linux bridge.
I have had a lot of requests about it during my trainings.

I don't have any objection. (now that everybody will use a recent kernel, it should work fine).
Having bonding and vlan setup in installer could be a big improvement too !

Hi all, 

I have installed a proxmox 4.0 to test openvswitch and IMHO the current 
network GUI config is not suited for the task since every time you need 
to create or delete an OVSint Port a reboot of the node is required. I 
will therefore propose a change in the GUI which allows creating or 
deleting of OVSint Port without the need for a reboot of the node. 
Creating OVS Bonds and OVS Bridges IMHO should still require a reboot 
of the node since changes here is something rarely done after initial 
configuration and changing configuration of this will break basic 
networking on the node. 

What is your opinion to this suggestion? 

Second. If the above is implemented then in my opinion using 
openvswitch is far superior to Linux Bridge/Bond and gives greater 
flexibility while at the same time is more logical and simple in use in 
which case I propose that the installer change default network 
configuration to use openvswitch in proxmox 4.0. 

What is your opinion to this suggestion?
