[PVE-User] Bug in ovs-bridge 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
