Hi, Im testing a Swift environment and everything works perfectly except the "curl" command to get an X-Storage-Url and X-Auth-Token. I am using keystone in another host to authenticate. This is what i get :

[root@SWIFT-MACHINE ~]# curl -k -v -H 'X-Storage-User: admin:admin' -H 'X-Storage-Pass: cloud' * About to connect() to port 5000 (#0) * Trying connected * Connected to ( port 5000 (#0)

GET /v2.0 HTTP/1.1 User-Agent: curl/7.19.7 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.19.7 NSS/ zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.4.2 Host: Accept: / X-Storage-User: admin:admin X-Storage-Pass: cloud

< HTTP/1.1 200 OK < Vary: X-Auth-Token < Content-Type: application/json < Content-Length: 616 < Date: Tue, 02 Apr 2013 10:34:03 GMT < * Connection #0 to host left intact * Closing connection #0 {"version": {"status": "beta", "updated": "2011-11-19T00:00:00Z", "media-types": [{"base": "application/json", "type": "application/vnd.openstack.identity-v2.0+json"}, {"base": "application/xml", "type": "application/vnd.openstack.identity-v2.0+xml"}], "id": "v2.0", "links": [{"href": "", "rel": "self"}, {"href": "", "type": "text/html", "rel": "describedby"}, {"href": "", "type": "application/pdf", "rel": "describedby"}]}}

When using the "swift" commad to get stats on my accounts, objects and containers as well as to upload or dowload object, everything works smoothly.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The "X-Storage-User" and "X-Storage-Pass" headers are applicable when you're using swauth or tempauth for authentication. It appears you're using Keystone. A request to authenticate to Keystone should look something like this,

curl -d '{ "auth":{ "passwordCredentials":{ "username":"admin", "password":"cloud" }, "tenantName":"admin" }}' -H "Content-type: application/json"
