+Note that if Open vSwitch is started manually (without the assistance of system
+startup scripts provided by packages like .deb or .rpm), you should provide a
+unique identification, $SYSTEM_ID for this host:
+
+```
+ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . external_ids:system-id=$SYSTEM_ID
+```
+
 And finally, start the ovn-controller.  (You need to run the below command
 on every boot)
