Hey Lajos,

Is this the exception you are encountering?

(neutron) l2-gateway-update --device name=hwvtep,interface_names=eth0,eth1
L2 Gateway 'b8ef7f98-e901-4ef5-b159-df53364ca996' still has active mappings
with one or more neutron networks.
Neutron server returns request_ids:

I don't see the L2GatewayInUse exception you're talking about, but I guess
it's the same situation.

We should discuss in which case the l2gw instance could be updated, and in
which cases it shouldn't.

Please, let me know!
