Hi, I have installed object storage server (swift). Although i can list account metadata and account containers etc, i can PUT (create) a new container. I use the command: curl -v -X PUT -H 'X-Auth-Token: AUTH_tk6a2ed9d89c834d01aba3be799ae22050' (

and i get 503 internal server error.

my syslog file has this error: Jan 7 18:52:50 snf-219455 container-server ERROR __call__ error with PUT /sdb3/180/AUTH_test/testcontainer :

check permissions on /srv/node/sdb3 - make sure the user named in /etc/swift/container-server[/].conf ("swift" by default) can write to it.
