Proxmox 6 Openvswitch


Sep 13, 2013
I had openvswitch running on 5.x without any issue. When I upgraded to 6.0 it has now stopped working. My network works but the network interfaces I have selected that have tagged vlans do not work. If I remove the bridge and setup a linux bridge that is vlan aware everything works as it should. My config is just done from the web interface nothing special. Now 6.x is a new install so I might have forgot something that I did on 5.x but I have the config file and don't see anything.
So lets say my untagged packets are vlan 2 I have some network interfaces on vlan 3 but vlan 3 doesn't go anywhere with openvswitch. Isn't it buy default supposed to be a trunk port.
were you able to resolve the issue?
If not please post your network configuration (`cat /etc/network/interfaces` and retract public IPs) in order for us to help.
