[Openstack-operators] Problem configuring openvswitch br-ex

I'm configuring Neutron on a network node (a virtual machine) having two NICs:


I've followed the official Openstack guide:


When I issue the command (step 4)

ovs-vsctl add-port br-ex eth0

the terminal I'm working on freezes, and the connection to is definitely lost, and I can't reconnect to it anymore from any other host.

I suspect there's some inaccuracy in the installation instructions, and in addition I'm not an expert on bridge and interfaces stuff.

Can someone explain me what's wrong and if there's a better documentation for a complete Neutron installation and configuration ?

thank you very much,
