[PVE-User] Bug in OVS creation from GUI

Hello,

I believe there is a bug in Ver. 3.3. Creating an OVS Bridge does not add
the line "allow-ovs vmbrX". For vmbr1 I had to manually add the line after
which it works perfectly, am certain the same would be true for vmbr2.
Although this is an easy work around it does sort of defeat the purpose of
the GUI. You will notice in the attached screenshot it actually removes the
line "-allow-ovs vmbr1".

Thank you

Sincerely,
Usama

working config manually entered in network/interfaces and system rebooted

cat /etc/network/interfaces

# network interface settings

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

auto vmbr1

allow-ovs vmbr1

iface vmbr1 inet static

        address  192.168.0.90

        netmask  255.255.255.0

        gateway  192.168.0.200

        ovs_type OVSBridge

        ovs_ports eth0



allow-vmbr1 eth0

        iface eth0 inet manual

        ovs_bridge vmbr1

        ovs_type OVSPort


Proposed config after adding another OVS Bridge from GUI


cat /etc/network/interfaces.new

# network interface settings

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

allow-vmbr1 eth0

iface eth0 inet manual

        ovs_type OVSPort

        ovs_bridge vmbr1

auto vmbr1

iface vmbr1 inet static

        address  192.168.0.90

        netmask  255.255.255.0

        gateway  192.168.0.200

        ovs_type OVSBridge

        ovs_ports eth0

iface vmbr0 inet manual

        bridge_ports none

        bridge_stp off

        bridge_fd 0

iface vmbr2 inet manual

        ovs_type OVSBridge
