Open vSwitch: /usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock

Hello,

When you face the problem below when trying to run OVS on your system (e.g. Ubuntu):

/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock: connection attempt failed (No such file or directory)
ovs-vsctl: unix:/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock: database connection failed (No such file or directory)

Make sure that you have openvswitch kernel module running. If not, try:

$ sudo modprobe openvswitch

That’s all,
