    Question how to setup openvswitch vxlan tunnel on OpenSUSE with wicked

    Hello,

    I have setup a openvswitch bridge "br-ex" and put "eth0" to this "br-ex" using wicked successfully. May I ask how can I add one VXLAN tunnel using wicked configuration files? Thank you.

    Below is configuration, which create a "br-ex" ovs bridge and put "eth0" into this bridge.

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0
    STARTMODE='auto'
    BOOTPROTO='none'
    
    sudo nano /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-br-ex
    STARTMODE='auto'
    OVS_BRIDGE='yes'
    OVS_BRIDGE_PORT_DEVICE_1='eth0'
    IPADDR='x.x.x.x/24'
    BOOTPROTO='static'
    STARTMODE='auto'
    
    sudo nano /etc/sysconfig/network/routes
    default y.y.y.y - br-ex
    Now I want to do "sudo ovs-vsctl --may-exist add-port br-ex vxlan0 -- set interface vxlan0 type=vxlan options:remote_ip=x.x.x.x options:key=8888 options:dst_port=8888" using configuration file like above. May I ask how can do it?

    I have tried below code, but it doesn't work. I'm not sure if I should use "VXLAN='yes'" type, and "options:key=8888" means "VXLAN_ID='8888'"?
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-vxlan0
    NAME='vxlan0'
    STARTMODE='auto'
    VXLAN='yes'
    VXLAN_REMOTE_IP='x.x.x.x'
    VXLAN_DST_PORT='8888'
    VXLAN_ID='8888'
    Code:
    man ifcfg-ovs-bridge
    man ifcfg-vxlan
    Does wicked not support all OVS functions at the moment?

    Thank you.

    Wicked creates kernel VXLAN interface (effectively "ip link add type vxlan). It does not attempt to create OVS port.
