hyperV: compute service goes off when booting an instance

I have a 2012 R2 windows machine where hyperV, neutron-hyperV-agent is installed.

I have a devstack running where neutron is not installed.

When I am trying to boot an instance, it fails with error: "ConnectionFailed: Connection to neutron failed: HTTPConnectionPool(host='x.x.x.x', port=9696): Max retries exceeded with url" and further re-scheduled to a different host.

But in the mean time compute service becomes dead in the hyperV host. Is this a known behaviour?

This is correct, you have to disable Neutron in Nova.conf to avoid the error: Comment the "network_api_class" setting in nova-compute.conf on your Hyper-V server(s) and restart the nova-compute service.

Please note that Nova network is currently NOT supported on Hyper-V and that you won't have any networking option for your VMs beside basic flat networking.
