I have installed openstack with help of microstack on ubuntu 18.04 server . I am trying to create a ubuntu image to launch instances . In the GUI section there is an option to create image , so I have downloaded a ubuntu 16.04 img file and providing it in the image source option as it doesn't have option to pass URL contrary to all the tutorials out there .

I have gone through some documentation and tutorial , but none of them are of help . I am getting unable to create image error when creating through GUI , or through CMD I am also not able to create an Image file . All the current documentation command are either starting with glance which I think microstack doesn't come with .

Can any one please guide me in right direction .

I am using IMG file because it doesn't requires running it with qemu and modifying it as ISO are required , according to some documentation . I am running it on a single server to do some POC and will create a cluster later .

Thanks .

What do you mean by "unable"? Are there any error messages on the command line or the glance API log? Any other symptoms you can report?

By the way, an OpenStack cloud without Glance is not entirely impossible, but would require massive tweaking. And Glance figures on the Microstack home page.

I am not able to find Glance log file , as according to the documentation , It should be here , but it's (not). Is microstack is only for Cirros, because all the document has it only as example ?

Log file locations are configurable. I have never tried microstack.

What error message do you get when trying to create an image on the command line?
