I just used wget to download a fedora atomic image to apply to containers once I install magnum. I'm trying to create a glance image using the following command:

glance image-create --name fedora-21-atomic-5 --visibility public --disk-format qcow2 --os-distro fedora-atomic --container-format bare < fedora-21-atomic-5.qcow2

And I get the following error:

403 Forbidden: You are not authorized to complete this action. (HTTP 403)

As far as I know, I'm running as admin. What else could be the issue?

Could you try to add 'export OS_IMAGE_API_VERSION=2' to your file?

Have your /etc/hosts an entry for controller node or a DNS server on which resolve the address?

Make sure glance-api is running. I got the same problem and I found my glance-api was dead.

Unstacking and restacking fixed all issues I was having.

May I ask what "unstacking and restacking" means?

Regards, Don
