Hi, I am trying to install swift using ansible. While doing so - I have followed the steps from this openstack documentation - ( to install basic packages on my debian wheezy machine.

There are steps when we change the ownership of /etc/swift to swift:swift. I get the error no swift user found. I also cross checked there is no such user present on the machine.

Can someone help?

Thanks Trupti

I believe you are using havana and your Openstack setup is UP and running fine. Can you create user swift as Instructions given here and then try change the ownership?

Make sure you have installed swift and swift proxy. Swift user will be created once you have installed it.
