Dumitru,
   Thanks for your advice.
   If many clusters connect with each on this way , I am afraid that the ARP flood cant' be controlled. Seems VXLAN EVPN is aimed at this issue ?
   It's faraway from success now,so I asked advice here.
Tian.

Maybe it's because I don't know the whole motivation behind this but wouldn't it be an option to have a single OVN cluster?  OVN supports VXLAN encapsulation for non-vtep natively since version 20.09:

If I understand the requirement correctly, I think having a localnet port on LS-1 (on both clusters) connected to br-vxlan would be enough.
Each of the clusters would see the other as a provider network (an extension of the L2 domain).

Did you already try it out?  Would it be possible to share the OVN and OVS DBs of the two clusters?
