Install Open vSwitch on CentOS

Installing Open vSwitch on CentOS 6.6

I would like to use Open vSwitch on my KVM nodes in my CloudStack deployment. I will download and build the Open vSwitch rpms on my deployment server, which is just a CentOS VM which i use for deploying packages etc.

Create a directory to download the Open vSwitch tar to (You can find the most recent OVS here: http://openvswitch.org/download/):

cd ~
mkdir -p rpmbuild/SOURCES
wget http://openvswitch.org/releases/openvswitch–2.3.1.tar.gz

mkdir -p rpmbuild SOURCES
