Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1010180
Physical interface is not bringed up
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:22:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I've installed and configured openvswitch (see attachments for full configs).
cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-p3p1 | grep 'ONBOOT\|TYPE\|obr0'
the ovs bridge is up and all ports are added but p3p1 interface is down and bridge is not able to obtain ip address.
NOTE: network service is in use (not NetworkManager).
ifconfig p3p1 up
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ovs and configure one port
Physical interface is down
Physical interface is up

The problem happens because the OVS bridge isn't configured properly.
You uploaded this:
$ cat ifcfg-obr0
But OVS Bridge doesn't use BOOTPROTO and requires OVSDHCPINTERFACES.
To enable DHCP on the bridge you need to use OVSBOOTPROTO instead of BOOTPROTO, and all the interfaces that can reach the DHCP server as a space separated list in OVSDHCPINTERFACES.
In your case, it would be like below:
The other file ifcfg-p3p1 looks good to me.
Could you see if fixing ifcfg-obr0 fixes the problem?
I am going to close this bug since I think the problem is just a misconfiguration. If you think otherwise, feel free to reopen it.

Sorry for the last response.
I've checked the configuration right now. It works.
