Hi Experts,

Everything was working fine until I found this issue.

I have created few containers yesterday and also uploaded few objects into each of them. Today I tried accessing the container from dashboard and received "Unable to retrieve container list" error message. Though I can still create new container and upload new objects. I can retrieve the container list for newly created container.

I can still see the names of the yesterday created container displaying in the dashboard but when I click the container name to retrieve its list then I have the error message pop out.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on all the servers and have the following infrastructure layout: Controller: storage proxy node: storage node: Network node: compute node:

Please suggest how can I access the objects in these containers or how can I delete them along with their objects forcefully? Why this has happened?

Hi Smaffuli, Sorry but I am new to this field and learning quickly. If you can specify which log I have to check and on which server as I have deployed multi node setup whereby I have separate servers running controller, proxyserver, storagenode? please specify - thanks

Is the dashboard getting a 404 or 503 from Swift? Is the dashboard doing any cacheing, what does the swift command line client say? Are all the services running and drives mounted? Proxy logs would be the best place to start, container logs next.

Rohit, were you able to find the real issue? Can we close this?

Almost 2 years, it should be closed?
