Open vSwitch Extension is not running on any switch

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

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?

Regular CMD call not from powershell.

Still no luck: 2016-06-22T16:47:38.029Z|00086|wmi|WARN|Open vSwitch Extension is not running on any switch

Have exactly same problem. PS C:\Users\Administrator.VBN> ovs-vsctl.exe add-br br0 ovs-vsctl.exe : ovs-vsctl: Error detected while setting up 'br0'. See ovs-vswitchd log for details. 2016-06-23T08:36:55.713Z|00078|wmi|WARN|Open vSwitch Extension is not running on any switch Solution did not work

Any updates to this issue?

I am still puzzled why this is not working in your case. Let's start by looking at your config. Can you post somewhere like http://pastebin.com/ the output of the following commands: Get-NetAdapter, ipconfig, systeminfo, Get-VMSwitch *, Get-VMSwitchExtension *, ovs-vsctl show, ovs-dpctl show

aserdean gravatar imageaserdean ( 2016-06-28 13:06:44 +0300 )edit

Hi, I'm not the originator of this question, but I seem to have the same problem.. If it can help, my paste of those commands is here: http://pastebin.com/312gt5Yn

I think I identified the problem. I am working on a solution and trying to replicate your environment. I will let you know when it is fixed. Thanks a lot for the logs. Alin.

aserdean gravatar imageaserdean ( 2016-06-30 22:09:43 +0300 )edit

Please try out our nightly-build https://cloudbase.it/downloads/openvswitch-hyperv-installer-beta.msi . It should fix the problem. We will modify our stable installer when we stress tested the above installer.

aserdean gravatar imageaserdean ( 2016-07-01 18:19:46 +0300 )edit

Hi. I'm afraid I still get the same problem. See http://pastebin.com/QzKzSFra The beta installer seems however to install an older 2.5.0.1 version of OVS ?

lgastevens gravatar imagelgastevens ( 2016-07-05 16:08:56 +0300 )edit

Hey, The version is not older is actually newer we switched from an unix format to a windows one. Just a quick question did you uninstall the previous installation and afterwards installed the new one?

aserdean gravatar imageaserdean ( 2016-07-07 18:02:14 +0300 )edit

No, I installed on top without uninstalling first. Let me retry again.

lgastevens gravatar imagelgastevens ( 2016-07-07 18:27:12 +0300 )edit

Ok, I uninstalled, deleted the CloudBase folder and re-installed the new beta.msi installer. But I still have the same exact problem...
