Using MAAS 3.1, have deployed Charmed OpenStack (focal-xena) on 5 physcial hosts, I have deployed a host with a bridge of “type” physical (br-ex) on the only network interface (appears as type “Bridged Physical” on MAAS GUI). However the rest of the hosts are deployed as “Open vSwitch” (br-ex). The host with “Physical” has lxd containers and services running on it, such as ceph-mon etc.
The host is reachable on the network and its lxd container services all seemingly work, but
a.) I would like to convert this node to “Open vSwitch” like the others
b.) I have errors when I do “ovs-vsctl show” on the host with the Physical Bridge -->
" Port br-ex
error: “could not add network device br-ex to ofproto (File exists)”
Any ideas what the best way to fix this and to have the reality reflected in MAAS GUI as well?
I have 2 ways I can think of:
- Move the services off that host and fix the “Bridge” type in MAAS and redeploy just that host?
- Manually convert the host to “Open vSwtich Bridge” and just live with the host being wrong in MAAS?
