Bug Description

In maas 1.7 (1.7.0+bzr3299-0ubuntu1~trusty), removing the managed interface associated with the pxe network causes maas to delete all nodes without warning.

While testing changes on a maas network that had several nodes deployed, removed the interface that is on the pxe network. All nodes were unexpectedly deleted and had to be added back in after reconfiguring interface. Tested this same action on another maas network running 1.5+bzr2252-0ubuntu1 and associated nodes were unaffected.

Confirmed this morning on my test maas; this is probably due to Django's defaulting to ON DELETE CASCADE.
