Glance with S3 backend store

I've successfully installed Glance. I've already tested it with the filesystem backend and it works fine. Although now I was trying to upload images to S3. For that I've edited the following glance-api.conf attributtes:


default_store = s3 ... s3_store_host = s3_store_access_key = XXXXXXX s3_store_secret_key = XXXXXXX


I've saved the file and restarted the glance-api. Then I try:

glance add name="image S3" is_public=true < sample.iso

But I get:

========================== Uploading image 'image S3' Failed to add image. Got error: Data supplied was not valid. Details: 400 Bad Request

The server could not comply with the request since it is either malformed or otherwise incorrect.

Error uploading image: (S3ResponseError): S3ResponseError: 403 Forbidden RequestTimeTooSkewedThe difference between the request time and the current time is too large.900000B941EA68EBC60960qJ9rCPcF+NJQFL9Bni11a4t0WhSSrgZJkOtrY09o1q4MVKNM29c60+ZLJ3JRY18dFri, 22 Jun 2012 05:07:46 GMT2012-07-02T15:25:37Z

Note: Your image metadata may still be in the registry, but the image's status will likely be 'killed'.

I've double checked the user credentials, they are ok. Any guess on what's happening there? I can't also refer to an S3 image with the "copy_from" option.

Another question, is there an option for uploading an image to a different backend than that elected as default on the .conf file? This is, a CLI option.

Thanks, the datetime was incorrect, a reboot was enough to synchronize it.

You are probably getting hit by the leap second issue... try refreshing your NTP date on the host that is running the Glance code.
