I want to run the command ovs-vsctl show inorder to trouble shoot a networking problem I am having with my openstack setup but can someone please tell me how I am able to get this command to work??

All openstack services are running in docker containers because its deployed using kolla. So openvswitch is running within certain containers so how am I supposed to run ovs-vsctl show command and see info about br-ex, br-int, br-tun? If I just open the command line for the control node where my network service are also running and try to run the command ovs-vsctl show it says command not found. Do I need to some how attach to the docker container and then run ovs-vsctl show or??
