Hello Openvswitch team,

Just wanted to report that the documentation lists an incorrect path for the ovsdb-server cli initialization

% ovsdb-server --remote=punix:/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock \
                 --remote=db:Open_vSwitch,Open_vSwitch,manager_options \
                 --private-key=db:Open_vSwitch,SSL,private_key \
                 --certificate=db:Open_vSwitch,SSL,certificate \
                 --bootstrap-ca-cert=db:Open_vSwitch,SSL,ca_cert \
                 --pidfile --detach

The db.sock path for remote argument should be —remot=punix:/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock

The vswitch daemon fails to initialize properly without db.sock reference.
