What version of networking-ovn are you using? To do this, you need
networking-ovn from master (ocata).

Right now scheduling is primitive. It uses a "least loaded" scheduling
policy to distribute gateways among the available chassis. There are some
obvious enhancements that need to be made.
1) We need to be able to specify only a subset of hosts that should be used
2) We need some HA capabilities to handle when a host handling a gateway
