Could you please share
 - the values of ovn_nb_connection and ovn_sb_connection defined in
 - the output of "ps -aef | grep ovsdb" on the node where you are running
the ovn-northd server.
 - If you could share the output of neutron-server logs in some paste link,
it would be helpful.

Are you able to run "ovn-nbctl show" ? I presume you have installed the
appropriate ovn RPMS ? If not so, please let me know how you have installed
