Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1460286
Failed delete network because port is still in use after Instance deleted
Last modified: 2017-06-16 11:47:47 EDT
Description of problem:
This issue is a little bit complicated for describe.
Burt, the bottom line is:
I cannot delete Network, raise error in Horizon dashboard:
Error: Failed to delete network 030b8fdd-63a4-401b-a0f4-45e47cc84df2
Error: Unable to delete network: perf-18-net
(see screenshot and neutron-server.log)
It happened because one or more ports are still in use.
I see, that Network has 3 ports (network:dhcp)
and 1 or more (Detached) with Status: Down and Admin State: UP
It's result after Instance deletion.
In other words: Instance deleted, but 1 or more ports stayed connected to Network, which prevent us delete Network.
Once I delete port, I can delete Network as well.
I investigated what instance was connected to that Network
(see attached nova.log)
Network Name perf-18-net
Network ID 030b8fdd-63a4-401b-a0f4-45e47cc84df2
Port ID 3ecde99a-8a26-44b1-8cf0-67e32b575b9f
Subnet ID 22c49121-c539-46b9-9b9a-24f3a5459345
Neutron error when delete Network with port:

That issues raised many times during my performance test execution and degraded performance because not deleted networks (more than 250) impacted on overall openstack performance.

To be honest, this looks like it's working as expected. Detaching interfaces from an instance occurs asynchronously and it requires collaboration between the guest and host to complete. It is possible that this detach would never complete, if the guest is unable or unwilling to detach the interface, and there's no way the host can force this. As a result of this, the interfaces are still present and neutron is correctly stating that it cannot delete the network.
If you want to delete a network, the only guaranteed way to do so is to delete all instances using that network.
I'm going to close this as NOTABUG. If I've missed something, feel free to reopen.
Yes, I agree with you.
Actually, I wanted to do an accent on an issue when instance didn't deleted ports. Probably, it is covered in another bug
Bug 1459687 - Failed to delete Instance, it's state changed to Error under load test.
So, let's close it.
