I am attempting to install a 2 node cloud instance, single controller and single compute in VirtualBox with Fuel 5.1.1. I get the error "Error running RPC method deploy: Disabling the upload of disk image because glance was not installed properly". The host OS is Ubuntu. Each VM (including Fuel) gettings 2GB RAM & 1 vCPU. The error appears on one node only, the controller successfully installs but the compute install fails with this error. Any idea where this error could be coming from?

first of all check, glance service is running in your controller node.

netstat -ntlp | grep 9292 If not, try to restart it using the following

service glance-registry restart
service glance-api restart

[root@node-24 ~]# netstat -ntlp | grep 9292 [root@node-24 ~]# service glance-registry restart glance-registry: unrecognized service [root@node-24 ~]# service glance-api restart glance-api: unrecognized service I guess glance was never installed. How to see what happened?

The error occurs when using Puppet module that I created and is called as part if Fuel's deployment of Openstack, module code at A slightly different one doesn't cause the issue, How can this prevent glance being installed?
