Great thank you. If you are using vagrant you can use the following
steps for a reproducer

vagrant init opensuse/openSUSE-15.0-x86_64
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
(inside vagrant)
sudo -s
zypper -n in openvswitch
systemctl enable openvswitch
systemctl reboot

checking the journald logs after the reboot should reveal the issue.

Let me know if you need any help.
