Perfect! Thanks a lot.
One small note:
# ./ovs-vsctl list Bridge
_uuid : 61e1cf27-3015-4a66-9861-b46365d30d0d
controller : [4923c57b-9895-4afd-b66f-e3d1e67b82d9]
datapath_id : "123456789abcdef"
This one doesn't work
# ./ovs-vsctl set Bridge br0 other-config:datapath_id=0123456789abcdef
This one does
# ./ovs-vsctl set Bridge br0 other-config:datapath-id=0123456789abcdef
In the 'list Bridge' output an underscore is used in 'datapath_id',
while with the set commando you need to use it with a hyphen, 'datapath-id'.
