We have kernel image and root file(raw disk) system seprately and want to launch vm using both.

How to configure glance so that it copies kernel image as well as raw disk on compute node.

More explanation-: Traditionally we use qcows image which has kernel image(+ its boot parameters),bootloader and filesystem packed in 1 image to Launch VM in Openstack. But we have kernel image and filesystem in separate file. There is a qemu kvm command having parameters -kernel(kernel image) and -drive (File System) and -append(to specify boot parameters) to launch VM.We wants to use these parameters in Qemu command when Openstack launches the VM.

After research we got solution for this.Refer link below
