[ovs-discuss] Connecting OVSs and hosts running on different VMs

Dear Scott,

Thanks for reactivity.
Since I have only one physical machine so I want to create inside it :
1- One VM representing OVS switch #1
2- One VM representing OVS switch #2
3- One VM representing the host machine #1 connected to OVS switch #1
4- One VM representing the host machine #2 connected to OVS switch #2

Then I have to ensure the connection between my 2 switches in one hand. On
the other hand I have to connect switch #1 to host #1. And I have to do
same witch switch 2 and host2
My scenario may be unusual but I have a limitation regarding physical
equipment availability.
