I'm trying to create new image using the following command:

glance image-create --name FileName --disk-format=qcow2 --container-format=bare --file filename.qcow2

I'm getting the following error: Request returned failure status 413 request entity too large Image storage media is full: There is not enough disk space on the image storage media.

Any idea what could be the reason for that ?

Seems you are out of disk space. Try the 'df' command to see if you have enough disk space for the image you are trying to upload to glance.

TIP: Usually the images are stored in /var/lib/glance folder (or find your actual configuration in /etc/glance/glance.conf). You could increase the available disk space using either another local disk, NFS shares or iSCSI technology.
