The idea for the future is to enable a new job with the l2gw agent enabled. In order to do that, I thought about creating a network namespace running an OVS instance with the hwvtep schema so the l2gw agent can connect to it. This is just a first rough idea and I haven't tested anything.
Do you have any other good approach for this??? On Mon, Jul 3, 2017 at 5:14 PM, Ihar Hrachyshka <ihrac...@redhat.com> wrote: > Plan sounds fine.
