My usecase is that I am setting up a lab to emulate a customers production environment which has multiple vlans. As this is done in a hosting environment where I don't have any control over the switches, I've created virtual switches with OpenVSwitch which connects together a couple of physical servers which are running virtual machines to emulate their servers. Currently I'm running a few virtual machines created manually with libvirt but looking for a more user friendly way of handling them.

I'm not looking at managing the network setup from Ovirt, I just want it to use the network that is present and create VM's there.

The tweaking that I did with 3.6 was to run the hosted-engine setup but where it failed I put the right answer in the file so that it would skip over that part. I got that far that it attempts to start the vm but as it doesn't give right parameters to libvirt it fails to create a port on the bridge.

I'm not having much luck with the 4.0 alpha though, this is a separate machine that I set up for this testing but when I run hosted-engine --deploy it just returns without any message. I did run the cleanup script found at http://www.ovirt.org/documentation/how-to/hosted-engine/ and rebooted in between but still no luck

I think OpenVSwitch should be supported in 4.0.

Has anybody succeeded in installing Ovirt 3.6 with hosted engine on a
server which uses OpenVSwitch for the network config?

I believe my issue is that Ovirt wants to control the network to create
a bridge for its management and I wants it to just use whatever network
is available on the host without trying to be clever about it. I was
able to tweak it to get to the final stage where it fails on waiting for
the engine to start.
Martin is right, but we should understand your usage of OpenVSwitch

Do you intend to use it for networking of ovirt VMs? For something else?

How did you tweak "it" (ovirt? hosted engine? ovs?)
