Quick note: following the ubuntu installation docs for Icehouse and i found an issue with the glance image registration. Specifically /var/lib/glance/images is owned by root:root . chown to glance:glance and image upload and registration will be successful

The documentation i'm refering to: (

Step: glance image-create --name=imageLabel --disk-format=fileFormat \ --container-format=containerFormat --is-public=accessValue < imageFile

Resolution: chwon -c -R glance:glance /var/lib/glance/images/

Thanks for the resolution, I think it's similar to this doc bug that was logged a while back.

Basically, for simplicity, the install guide uses the file backend for glance, and when you configure another, you'll have to do additional configuration.

What is the error you are getting ? I'm getting this error:

root@ubuntu:~/images# glance image-create --name "cirros-0.3.2-x86_64" --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --is-public True --progress < cirros-0.3.2-x86_64-disk.img [=============================>] 100% Request returned failure status. HTTPInternalServerError (HTTP 500) root@ubuntu:~/images#

I tried the fix you suggested, same result.
