--- Comment #1 from Marius Tomaschewski <mt@xxxxxxxx> ---
TUNNEL=... causes wicked to create a normal gre tunnel device in the kernel
(make an "ip link add" call). I don't know how ovs is creating the gre tunnel.

Please open a feature request ( [LEAP] or
to add ovs gre tunnel support to wicked. Until now, wicked supports only a
basic set with normal ethernet interfaces only and it will not change without
feature requests.

What you can also try is to use a hook like this to make the proper ovs call
(pre-up == after creation, but before "ip link set up" call):


-> /etc/wicked/scripts/whatever
action="$1" # "pre-up" script action
bridge="$2" # "br1" when used in ifcfg-br1

ovs-vsctl add-port $bridge gre1 -- set Interface gre1 type=gre \
