Finished the glance install and setup on Ubuntu 12.04 Openstack following the install guide and when I run the following command I get the following error:

glance image-create --name="CirrOS 0.3.1" --disk-format=qcow2   --container-format=bare --is-public=true < cirros-0.3.1-x86_64-disk.img
Request returned failure status.
HTTPInternalServerError (HTTP 500)

I checked the /var/log/glance/api.log and shows the following errors.

Stderr: '/bin/sh: 1: collie: not found\n' Disabling add method.

You server is getting into some issue. Are you configuring cinder as back-end store ?

I haven't even reached the storage setup stage this error is on the image service stage. The install document suggest using CirrOS 3.1 as a test to verify the image service is installed and running. (

Ok I was able to solve it. It was a silly mistake on my part. When I granted privileges on glance table, I forgot to change the password 'GLANCE DBPASS'. It worked fine when I changed that and synced the db again.

Just adding to this. I managed to get rid of the error 500 by commenting out all of the unused storage options. Not sure why the package leaves them in by default.

Add this to your glance-api.conf at the bottom. This assume you are using keystone like the guide says. Also check your glance-api-paste.ini file!
