It's own configuration database, we cannot have a centralized one ?

What is the purpose of ptcp:ip:port then ? Just to be able to have several instance of ovs-server on the same physical server ?

That will not work.  Each OVS must have its own configuration database,
which must be hosted by an ovsdb-server running on the same machine.
