If you use ovn-multihost-physical.json [1] you need to pre provision
the "controller" and "node" machines with OVS/OVN. This is different
than with install_method="sandbox" which will take care of
provisioning the nodes with OVS/OVN sandboxes. With the sample in [1]
ovn-scale-test will expect ovn-northd to be running on machine and ovn-controller running on machine,
connected to the SB database on the .254 node.
