PS C:\Users\Administrator> ovs-vsctl.exe add-br br-port3
ovs-vsctl:  Error detected while setting up 'br-port3'.  See ovs-vswitchd log for details.

From the ovs-vswitchd log:

2016-06-22T13:27:04.187Z|00030|wmi|WARN|Open vSwitch Extension is not running on any switch
2016-06-22T13:27:04.188Z|00031|wmi|WARN|Could not find HRESULT description for: 0.

However, I do have the vSwitch configured with it:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> get-VMSwitchExtension -VMSwitchName vSwitch -Name "Open vSwitch Extension"


Id                  : 583CC151-73EC-4A6A-8B47-578297AD7623

ComputerName        : WIN-HQHVLTQ4OLK
Key                 :

So what am I doing incorrectly? I'm following the blog post from https://cloudbase.it/open-vswitch-2-5...

Please stop the service ovs-vswitchd. Clear the log file and then start the service ovs-vswitchd again.

We have an issue during reboots that is addressed but not published under release yet.

UPDATE:Please try the installer https://cloudbase.it/downloads/openvs... it should fix the problem. We will update the stable installer soon.

Thanks, Alin.

I updated my previous answer. Could issue the above and try a reboot?
