I do have a swift cluster with a proxy and storage node. I have added the repository of ice house with the following commands:

apt-get -y install python-software-properties
apt-get -y install ubuntu-cloud-keyring
apt-add-repository cloud-archive:icehouse
apt-get update

The cluster is working perfectly with no issues. To check the current version that i have installed ran the command in both the nodes:

swift --version

I got the reply swift 2.0.3 from proxy node. But i am not able to get the version from my storage node. I am attaching the screen shot from my storage node. Could anyone sort out this for me?storage screenshot

I am wondering why i am getting prompted to install swift again to a working cluster..!

The swift --version command shows you the version of the swift CLI tool ( ).

To find the version of Swift itself, either look at the packages you installed (ie directly or indirectly ask the disto) or make a "/info" request to Swift. See

Or you could run "swift capabilities" and it will tell you the swift proxy /server version

This is really slick and works from the command line.
