when I create a fake bridge in node with this command "sudo ovs-vsctl add-br br200 br0 200" ,
openvswitch system return this error when deploying VM "[VMM][I]: ovs-ofctl: br200 is not a bridge or a socket"
because opennebula use ovs-ofctl on fake bridge! ovs-ofctl just work on real bridge.

if i give real and fake bridge both to opennebula, then we can use br0 (real bridge) for monitoring and use fake bridge to VM net

Is there a good reason why you're using fake bridges?

We used to do the same, but we realized it's way easier to just use the real bridge and separate the traffic using vlans.

Moving to backlog until decided whether using fake bridges is an interesting feature.
I'd like to encourage the OP to explain why this feature is interesting.
If anyone else has an opinion please join the thread.
