swift restart gives: No module named swiftclient

asked 2013-07-15 14:38:25 -0500

I'm bringing up swift on a new cluster that was installed using a vendors automated openStack installation product. Changes were made to use the nodes real hard drives instead of loopback devices. Restarting swift generates a complaint that swiftClient is missing. Do/Should I download a stable swift tarball and reinstall manually on all 10 swift nodes? or can I just copy the missing file to the expected location? If the 2nd what file & location? Thank, Tim

(reinstalling) swift-client resolves the problem. Why it wasn't installed originally is a different issue.
