Question and I know it's probably been asked already but it was like 7 years ago from what I have seen..

Is there any way of adding OpenVSwitch Patch Ports, I know I can do it from the console of the host, and if I manually edit the interfaces file.

Presently I have 3 OpenVSwitch Bridges 2 of which do not have direct Fabric connections to the outside world... only via the third.

Reasoning: each of the 2 VPC's are been used for vm's and containers which are behind a load balancer and reverse proxy and so they can be kept isolated..

I know in the GUI it only allows for OVSBridge, OVSIntPort, and OVSBonds..
