Hello All,

I am trying to use this doc to setup the containers using OVS-DPDK (
but when I try to configure the ovs on overlay mode I am little confused on
this configuration. I don't have a remote server I want everything to be
installed in same server. so can you please help me out what should I
remove and replace in the below config

ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . \
    external_ids:ovn-remote="tcp:$CENTRAL_IP:6642" \
    external_ids:ovn-nb="tcp:$CENTRAL_IP:6641" \
    external_ids:ovn-encap-ip=$LOCAL_IP \

like what is CENTRAL_IP? ENCAP_TYPE and all?
