Goal

To delete an Instance whose state became "Deleting" when attempted to terminate it from OpenStack Dash-board or CLI.

The instance will terminated actually but the task status of the instance never changes to"deleted" hence they never disappear from the openstack dashboard.  This document helps on how to update the status of the instance in the database and get rid of the "pseudo deleting" state in dashboard.

The task status of the instance is displayed as "deleting" in openstack dashboard.
