I have successfully installed Openstack on my Ubuntu server, however I have errors trying to access the swift installaion using jclouds.

Trying to troubleshoot it from the command line, I got the following error :

ERROR: openstack The resource could not be found. (HTTP 404) (Request-ID: req-0f24312c-74de-483a-b8b7-b578c8bfb37f)

relevant parts of the code is :

public Swifter() {
      Iterable<module> modules = ImmutableSet.<module>of(
            new SLF4JLoggingModule());

      String provider = "openstack-swift";
      String identity = "admin:admin"; // tenantName:userName
      String credential = "OVnAhlgYvTmWTVPAgUXm";

      swiftApi = ContextBuilder.newBuilder(provider)
            .endpoint("")// or
            .credentials(identity, credential)

   private void createContainer() {
      System.out.println("Create Container");

      ContainerApi containerApi = swiftApi.getContainerApi("RegionOne");
      CreateContainerOptions options = CreateContainerOptions.Builder
                  "key1", "value1",
                  "key2", "value2"));

      containerApi.create(CONTAINER_NAME, options);

      System.out.println("  " + CONTAINER_NAME);

The output i get :

Create Container

I'm afraid that's too little to understand what's wrong. You should provide the relevant parts of the code you wrote, log messages from swift and other details useful to debug. Edit your question and add details.

Does anyone have an idea, as to how to resolve this error ?

@smaffulli. Yes that is the intention, i.e. fb10openstack.hpi.uni-potsdam is an alias for the actual ip address. I have issues with the swift client also, for example swift - v3 stat gives the error " swiftclient.service.SwiftError: 'Account not found'. This I have not been able to resolve too ! "

Looks like there is something wrong on the Swift side. Check the logs there, make sure that at least the swift client can connect and then try new code.

I am not very familiar with jclouds and Swift (I've only tried jclouds with Nova), sorry. I have noticed that your code refers to for auth but logs point at for the Swift operations: is that really the intention?

You mention having installed Swift yourself: I'm assuming that you can reach Swift normally with the swift client, right? Have you checked the logs in the machine running Swift? Maybe there are hints there, too.
