Hi everyone I setup the openstack with devstack, and when I want to create an image, there is an error says "Client disconnected before sending all data to backend"(Http 400)

My command is

 glance image-create --name='ubuntu12.04 server' --is-public=true --container-format=bare --disk-format=qcow2 < ubuntu-12.04-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img

And by the way, How can I access to the log of glance? I have try the glance-api.log, but there is nothing while I am executing "glance".

  1. Set DEBUG=True in glance.conf
  2. glance --debug image-create --name='ubuntu12.04 server' --is-public=true --container-format=bare --disk-format=qcow2 < ubuntu-12.04-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img

Usually glance will log in glance-api.log. Try to enable debug and verbose mode in glance conf files to see more useful information.

Be sure you have enough disk space on the machine where glance is running, in order to store the disk image. The error could be caused by this issue.

Usually glance stores new images in /var/lib/glance/images/. Try to check in that folder if you see any new file when you run the glance image-create command.

Thanks all at first, I can see what's the problem, and it says

TRACE swiftclient ConnectionError: HTTPConnectionPool(host='', port=8080): Max retries exceeded with url: /v1/AUTH_66c58aaf4c9740c5b881116c6582a41a/glance (Caused by <class 'socket.error'="">: [Errno 111] ECONNREFUSED)

And how can I solve this problem?

Thanks, I have solved this problem, it probably caused by the incorrect setting of bridge.
