[Likitha] If the VPC has any tier that is a persistent network, the VPC will not be cleaned
up during gc.

[Likitha] You are right, there is no change in behavior

>>Hi Likitha,

>>Can you please clarify below questions :

>>a.  Does the ListNetworks API response gives the details of Persistent Network?
>[Likitha] Yes the response should say if the network is persistent or not.
>>b.  When the account is deleted , Do we allow deletion of persistent
>>networks created by this account ?
>[Likitha] Yes, both persistent and non-persistent networks will be cleaned up.
>>c.   Is there any change with persistent networks when Restart Network is
>>triggered  with cleanup=true ?
>[Likitha] No
>>d.  Do we have support for network update from non-persistent to
>>persistent network using network offering upgrade or vice-versa?
>[Likitha] Yes, we will support both.
>To expand on that, when a network offering of a network is updated from non-

>And when a network offering of a network is updated from persistent to non-

>>f.  Do we trigger the configuration @Netscaler  while creating the
>>persistent network itself ?
>[Likitha] Yes, if the network being created is from a persistent network offering,

>[Likitha] While the Network GC thread is checking for all the networks that have

>>h.  Do we support delete networks ?
>[Likitha] Yes. Same behavior as non-persistent networks.
>>i. Any plans to new Alerts/Events ?
>[Likitha] No new Alerts or Events will be generated.
