Hello,
Thanks for your answer. I have installed openvswitch in SLES from the 1.9.3 source code LTS in openvswitch.org. Compiling the source code.

I think you are correct. How did you install Open vSwitch for SLES?
Did you install it through an official rpm? We have network integration scripts for RHEL and Fedora. Unless someone has ported that to SLES, it is unlikely to work.

You can read about the RHEL network integration script in the file rhel/README.RHEL present in the Open vSwitch git repo. It is probably possible to port it to SLES with some effort.
