Right now, I am creating only one instance of vswitchd on the host, but 2 bridges, one on the host for the containers to communicate to the.host and the other inside the container so that the vms can be attached to that one. Creating the second bridge is where I am facing an issue with the previous error. Seems like you are saying this is not needed. Is that correct? I will look at KVM for more information.
> I could successfully set up UML to UML communication without containers on a host. It's confusing because now the UMLs are created within the container. So, I am just wondering how the UMLs will use OVS to communicate if They cannot be attached to thr bridge because of the connection error.
You're asking why a process running inside of a container is not able
to make changes to something running in the root container? Please
take a minute to think about the purpose of containers and what I have
already told you. You should be able to answer this question
You have been asked several times to do some basic research and
thinking before posting questions, which you seem unwilling or unable
to do. Until that changes, I'm not interested in continuing this
