Hi

I am trying to build the ovs for windows according to instructions that
appear here

http://docs.openvswitch.org/en/latest/intro/install/windows/

Everything went fine (almost make check failed some unitests). However when
I am trying to run the ovsdb-server with the following command line

ovsdb-server -vfile:info --remote=unix:db.sock --log-file --pidfile  -v

It says it cannot connect to pipe. In the beginning it complained that it
cannot find the db.sock file however when I created it is now cannot
connect to windows pipe with similar name. Looking st the code of
https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/master/lib/stream-windows.c

I notice that it assumes that both file and pipe should exist.
https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/df514c62b6685bda925afab6b5857b2067517354/lib/stream-windows.c#L120

https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/df514c62b6685bda925afab6b5857b2067517354/lib/stream-windows.c#L132




I can easily create the file but does ovsdb-server really expects from me
to create a named pipe also? Can someone shed a light on whether I missed
something during the build process. And how can I get this running?

Thanks
