Creating External Bridge

Final quick question regarding bridges and tunnels, I promise!

When configuring the external network on my 3 node cluster, I have the following bridge setup:

auto eth2 iface eth2 inet manual up ifconfig $IFACE 0.0.0.0 up up ip link set $IFACE promisc on down ip link set $IFACE promisc off down ifconfig $IFACE down

auto br-eth2 iface br-eth2 inet static address 192.168.2.7 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.2.1

Do I also need to set bridge_ports eth2 or is this handled fully by the virtual switch? I only ask as Ubuntu 14.04 hangs on loading the network on startup for a few minutes. However, I can then see br-eth2 when I ifconfig and can also ping the static IP on the bridge from another host on the same network.

All of the neutron logs show no errors with this config so is this just Ubuntu fussing because it doesnt understand that the OVS is handling things now? If that makes sense...

Thank you all for your kind help and patience.
