[ovs-discuss] Is it possible to share a dhcp server among openvswitches?

My intention is to create a virtualnetwork between vms.

Let us assume two networks: I set a gre tunnel between two openvswitches
which are located on two pc, each pc belongs to a different network.

Now, I make sure there is just one dhcp server and it is on the network 1.
Also, I make sure that broadcasted messages are sent on all openvswitch
ports, so into gre port too.

Will this work? Will every vm on the network 2 obtain ip address from the
dhcp located on the network 2 ?
