Affected Versions:OpenNebula 3.8


In Ubuntu 12.10 (and going forward all additional versions), the Openvswitch support for brcompat has essentially been removed. Instead, the built-in libvirt support for openvswitch is being used.

It appears that currently opennebula doesn't support this and it causes the following error when attempting to use with a 12.10 system:

2012-12-10 05:15:27.622+0000: 17224: error : virNetDevBridgeAddPort:309 : Unable to add bridge br0 port vnet0: Operation not supported
2012-12-10 05:15:27.642+0000: 17224: error : virNWFilterDHCPSnoopEnd:2113 : internal error ifname "vnet0" not in key map
2012-12-10 05:15:27.647+0000: 17224: error : virNetDevGetIndex:657 : Unable to get index for interface vnet0: No such device

Basically, from what I tracked down opennebula currently only works with brcompat, while instead it should be using the built-in openvswitch type.
