I'm running an OpenStack all-in-one controller VM on a Hyper-V host build with v-magine/devstack/RDO. The images uploaded appear to be in a local XFS mount point:

[root@rdo ~(keystone_admin)]# df -h
Filesystem                   Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/centos_rdo-root   36G   33G  3.8G  90% /

Unfortunately, I would like to add more than 36G's of images--is there anyway to either change the location that Glance uses to store added images, or increase the size of centos_rdo-root?

su -s /bin/sh -c "glance-manage db_sync" glance

It appeared to work, but when I try adding an image it fails with the

410 Gone: Error in store configuration. Adding images to store is disabled. (HTTP N/A)

Did some research on that and no changes in the glance-api.conf file that people recommended seemed to work.

Ok got it working. Had to make the glance account owner of the mount point: (
