Hi, I Have configured Nova Environment in 2 Servers 1, nova-api + nova-network + nova-objectstore + nova-scheduler 2, nova-compute,nova-volume on Ubuntu 10.10, Hypervisor KVM

I bundled Ubuntu Images as per the below link

http://cssoss.wordpress.com/2010/05/10/eucalyptus-beginner%E2%80%99s-guide-%E2%80%93-uec-edition-chapter-4-%E2%80%93-image%C2%A0management/ (http://cssoss.wordpress.com/2010/05/1...)

My Bundling,image registration process went successfully. but i am not able to run the instance.

is this the right practice to bundle image? is there any other method for bundling the images.

There's your problem.

The image you've uploaded is in qcow2 format. It needs to be in raw format.

Once you've prepared your images, they can be bundled following the steps here: http://wiki.openstack.org/XenServerDevelopment#Instance_Management (http://wiki.openstack.org/XenServerDe...)

You will want to note the euca-bundle* commands.
