Hello, My current problem is that I installed glance (no error during the installation) and at the point I want to verify the installation with an image creation, I get the following error:

root@borkum:/tmp/images# source ~/
root@borkum:/tmp/images# glance image-create --name "cirrosTestImage" --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)

my admin-openrc settings are exactly as described in the installation guide . Has anybody an idea, what I could do? I already tryed diefferend authentication settings, but non of them worked.


The /var/log/glance/registry.og file gives this:

OperationalError: (OperationalError) (1045, "Access denied for user 'glance'@'controller' (using password: YES)") None None
2014-12-16 10:37:49.800 26102 INFO glance.wsgi.server [KEYSTONE IDs - - -] - - [16/Dec/2014 10:37:49] "POST /images HTTP/1.1" 500 139 0.516276

The api.log says nothing more. The debug output isn't very helpfull either. I also checked that the user glance is in the admin role and in the glance tenant.

Check your glance log at /var/log/glance and put the error message on your post.

You should take a look in the glance logs if you haven't already. Set debug = True as well in the glance conf files to extract the detailed info on what's going on in the back ground.

Drop the glance database and set the character set to utf8 mysql -u root -p
