1. Did it give any error while creating the snapshot or it was successful.
2. If it failed, please look at the /var/log/nova/compute*.log on compute hosts.
3. Please run the command 'nova image-list'. Do you see this image ?
4. Run the command 'glance image-list'. Now you don't see the image.

Is this the case ? Do let me know.

Final Solution : Havana creates the private images by default. Regarding your images not listed, images are created in database for private. We need to set the same to public. Please do the following

a. Run 'nova image-list'. Note the UUID of the image which you want to make it public
b. glance image-update <UUID> --is-public=True.
c. You can directly update the 'images' table in glance db as well using sql query.

1. Snapshot is successfully created. 2. No error in compute.log 3. This is some what intresting.. I can see the list in which i can see the names of snapshots which i tried and those are in active status.. 4. glance image-list shows the following output "publicURL endpoint for image not found."

1. Glance issue. You have created the endpoint wrongly. Please look at the endpoint creation for glance. http://controller:9292/v1 | http://controller:9292/v1. Here 'v1' is not required. 2. You are seeing these images in 'nova image-list'. I'm sure they are not visible in 'glance image-list'. Can you drop an email. It is becoming difficult to type the comments due space limitation. If you are ok tell me your mail id. I will drop an detail email.
