about brctl meltdown on RHEL 6.3



I'm sorry can not reply to the original letter.

openvswitch and brctl can run normal together in RHEL6.3.

error message:

>ProcessExecutionError: Unexpected error while running command.
>Command: sudo nova-rootwrap /etc/nova/rootwrap.conf brctl addbr
>Exit code: 1
>Stdout: ''
>Stderr: 'add bridge failed: Package not installed\n'


1.openvswitch process running in backend

2.modprobe brcompat_mod

3.ovs-brcompatd --pidfile --log-file --detach

4.ovs-vsctl add-br br-int...add-port...(if you have done then not need redo)

5.login dashboard and launch instance.
6.check instance status,it is ok.

1.the process ovs-brcompatd will be shutdown when run "service openvswitch stop",then pls startup it by manual.
