I am using openstack nova personality feature to pass some files to guest VMs. This is with the help of config_drive mechanism of openstack.

But one of my files size is around 1MB, and when I try to execute the nova boot command, i get "OverLimit: Over limit (HTTP 413)"

Upon debug mode, I see this

DEBUG (session:215) RESP: [413] Date: Tue, 17 Oct 2017 13:55:38 GMT Content-Length: 56 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 X-Compute-Request-Id: req-7e2cbbc6-33b4-4878-bbc5-d3cf0f1bf005 RESP BODY: 413 Request Entity Too Large

Request is too large.

I have already increased the openstack default quota file size, but still seeing the same error.

Any idea?

Just check your project quota limits , Thats the bottleneck causing this error.
