How to set the bridge's controller?
I tried
#ovs-vsctl set bridge xenbr0 controller=10.1.132.112
ovs-vsctl: "10.1.132.112" is not a valid UUID

P.S.
VM1 running NOX has ip 10.1.132.112
Host running OVS, has xenbr0 with ip 10.1.132.54
vif1 for VM1 is added to xenbr0.

------------------------------

It looks like you only have a single physical machine.  In that case,
the OVS setup is simple.  Create a bridge, e.g. br0.  Add a VIF for each
VM, including the NOX controller VM, to that bridge.  If you want the

VMs to have access to a physical network, then add e.g. eth0 to the
bridge also.  (If Dom0 has an IP address on eth0 then you'll need to
move it to br0 instead.)  *Set the bridge's controller to point to the

NOX VM's IP address.*
