I have a multi-node Openstack Havana installation in Ubuntu 13.04. Everytime I try to create an snapshot (via CLI and via dashboard), I do not get any errors but the snapshot is never created. Any ideas of why this might be happening?

When you are creating the snapshots are the machines running? Have you tried to create a snapshot of a shut off machine?

@ShillaSaebi In Horizon it is not possible to create a snapshot if the machine is suspended. The option is only allowed when the machines are running.

you're absolutely correct, I just double checked.

Have you checked the logs for any errors? Horizon may not show any of the errors but something may be logged on the back end? Also we had an issue where one of our users was unable to create snapshots due to timeout errors. Restarting the glance service fixed the problem for us.

Not a single error line in the logs :(

I'm sure he did, but I doubt he is still running the Havana cloud three years after he asked the question.
