Hi Bhuvan,

I think this is just a Neutron Error.
It seems that when the failure occurred, the network where the VM was running was marked as 'external'.

This is consistent with the following scenario:
- boot VM on 'regular' network
- with admin right, set network as external
- destroy VM

I think to this aim that we should prevent updates of network's external attributes when there are active VM ports, at least for the nicira plugin. Please let me know if that will work for you.
