I'm trying to connect OVS to a controller using IPv6 as below, but it is not working.

# sudo ovs-vsctl set-controller s1 tcp:[fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528]

However, it gives the following error: 

2017-07-04T17:47:00Z|00730|rconn|WARN|s1<->tcp:[fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528]: connection failed (Invalid argument)
2017-07-04T17:47:08Z|00731|stream_tcp|ERR|tcp:[fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528]: connect: Invalid argument

When I check ping6, I can ping

# ping6 -I eth0 fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528
PING fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528(fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528) from fe80::f22:a6c2:6603:13b eth0: 56 data bytes

64 bytes from fe80::41f3:ab56:bbab:a528: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.740 ms

What should I do? Thanks in advance..
