Hi All,

To test scalability of controller, I made a docker container which simulates as chassis using the instructions given by Dustin http://blog.spinhirne.com/2016/09/a-primer-on-ovn.html.

Everything was working fine, I was able to connect to my controller and can see the flows coming back to my controller. I was using released version 2.6.0.

For some patches wanted to get latest version and found that after I upgrade to latest patch , my script doesn't work. Upon troubleshooting found that when I give the last command which establishes the connection to controller i.e ovs-vsctl set open . external-ids:ovn-encap-ip=<IP> , eth0 stopped Transmitting  any packets on the container.

I started poking around and found that commit "1ea9b847135eddca39ed95c0811edd605f6ca114" introduced this issue. If I use a commit before that things are working fine.

Any pointers ?
