Description Eric Harney 2012-12-18 16:23:27 EST
Description of problem:
Using the Quantum instructions in the Getting Started guide tells you to run "ovs-vsctl add-br br-int".  This fails because the openvswitch service has not been started yet.  The ovs-vsctl command also seems to require sudo, but is not shown to use sudo in the guide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_OpenStack_Preview/2/html/Getting_Started_Guide/chapter-Quantum.html  on Dec 18

Actual results:

Expected results:
No errors

Additional info:
Need to add "sudo service openvswitch start", "sudo chkconfig openvswitch on", and sudo to the ovs-vsctl command.

commit 3088caae08a1ca2c28c14d2b5be58b3260b37557

BZ#888553 - Start openvswitch service and use sudo.
Previously instructions in Quantum chapter:
- Skipped starting of openvswitch service (required by ovs-vsctl
- Did not note need to run ovs-vsctl using sudo.
