I have done nova-multinode setup. After that I tried to upload the image via euca 2ools. But an exception is thrown when I tried to upload an image

nova$ euca-upload-bundle -b mybucket -m /tmp/kernel.manifest.xml Checking bucket: mybucket Warning: failed to parse error message from AWS: <unknown>:7:2: mismatched tag Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/euca-upload-bundle", line 231, in <module> main() File "/usr/bin/euca-upload-bundle", line 214, in main bucket_instance = ensure_bucket(conn, bucket, canned_acl) File "/usr/bin/euca-upload-bundle", line 87, in ensure_bucket bucket_instance = connection.get_bucket(bucket) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/boto/s3/", line 275, in get_bucket rs = bucket.get_all_keys(headers, maxkeys=0) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/boto/s3/", line 204, in get_all_keys headers=headers, query_args=s) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/boto/s3/", line 342, in make_request data, host, auth_path, sender) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/boto/", line 459, in make_request return self._mexe(method, path, data, headers, host, sender) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/boto/", line 435, in _mexe raise BotoServerError(response.status, response.reason, body) boto.exception.BotoServerError: BotoServerError: 503 Service Unavailable <html><head> <title>Network Error</title> </head> <body>

Also I am not able to find the "eucarc" file.

Could you please help me on this issue

Do you have the s3_host flag set correctly in the flag file? It should be set to your nova-objectstore IP.
