[ovs-discuss] Controller reference as name

I'm trying a loadbalancer implementation with DNS and I need to set the
controller of the vswitch as a domain name instead of its IP address.

ovs-vsctl set-controller br0 tcp:controllerx:6633

Such "controllerx" has the appropriate IP reference of the controller at
the DNS Server. I also tried setting it at /etc/hosts. I always got the
same error shown at "ovs-vsctl list controller":
status     :   last_error="Address family not supported by protocol"

Is there any way to use controller name instead of IP address in the
"ovs-vsctl set-controller" command? If not is there an alternative?
