VLANs should be configured through Open vSwitch.  The ovs-vsctl command can be used to configure VLANs. There are a couple of different ways to configure them, so take a look at the man page to see the options:


Let us know if the options aren't clear or you want some advice about which way makes more sense for your environment.

This is likely because you don't have a program or kernel module that we're trying to use to make sure that traffic policing is not enabled on your interface.  The messages are harmless, but we will add cleaning them up to our to-do list.
