I create an OVS bridge with:
# ovs-vsctl add-br br-int
This create a netdevice that I can see in ifconfig. And then I create a NetworkManager connection and bring it up:
# nmcli connection add type generic con-name br-int autoconnect yes ifname br-int ip4 188.8.131.52/24 # nmcli con up br-int ifname br-int
However, each time after I reboot the host (Ubuntu 16.04) the connection has to be manually brought up again. Is there a way to tell NetworkManager to automatically bring up this interface once OVS has created it?
