Hi, thanks a lot for the reply. It gave me the direction I needed. I
was using NetworkManager
to create the ovs bridge/port/interface, and it doesn't automatically
add the internal interface
that ovs-vsctl add-br does. Once i've setup my NetworkManager
connections properly, the
bridge appeared in ip link show and libvirt was able to find it.

Thanks a lot for the assistance!
