swift error logs and error: [Errno 111] ECONNREFUSED

Hello ,I was wondering if any one could help me with this problem .I have installed a multimode installation based on the steps provided by The only difference that I made to the installation was that all my storage nodes have single hard drives and so I have partition the hard drives to ext3 for ubuntu and xfs for swift. The xfs partion is mounted at /svr/node/sdb1 on all the node.

every time I run swift -A https://<proxy_ip>:8080/auth/v1.0 -U system:root -K testpass stat

i get [Errno 111] ECONNREFUSED and when I run swift -A https://<proxy_ip>:8080/auth/v1.0 -U system:root -K <mypass> upload myfiles openSUSE-11.4-DVD-i586.iso where <proxy_ip> is the proxy ip address and <my_pass> is the password I get this error.

File "/usr/bin/swift", line 949, in run self.func(item, self.args, *self.kwargs) File "/usr/bin/swift", line 1639, in _object_job headers = conn.head_object(container, obj) File "/usr/bin/swift", line 861, in head_object return self._retry(None, head_object, container, obj) File "/usr/bin/swift", line 792, in _retry rv = func(self.url, self.token, args, *kwargs) File "/usr/bin/swift", line 573, in head_object conn.request('HEAD', path, '', {'X-Auth-Token': token}) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 955, in request self._send_request(method, url, body, headers) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 989, in _send_request self.endheaders(body) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 951, in endheaders self._send_output(message_body) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 811, in _send_output self.send(msg) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 773, in send self.connect() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1154, in connect self.timeout, self.source_address) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/eventlet/green/", line 59, in create_connection raise error, msg error: [Errno 111] ECONNREFUSED I also can not find the log files for swift.

I also don't know where the log files are.

my proxy-server.conf file is as follows

[DEFAULT] cert_file = /etc/swift/cert.crt key_file = /etc/swift/cert.key bind_port = 8080 workers = 8 user = swift log_facility = LOG_LOCAL1

[pipeline:main] pipeline = healthcheck cache tempauth proxy-server

[app:proxy-server] use = egg:swift#proxy allow_account_management = true

[filter:tempauth] use = egg:swift#tempauth user_system_root = testpass .admin https://<proxy_ip>/v1/AUTH_system

[filter:healthcheck] use = egg:swift#healthcheck

[filter:cache] use = egg:swift#memcache memcache_servers = <proxy_ip>:11211

I also get this when I enter the code below curl -k -v -H 'X-Auth-Token: AUTH_****' https:// <proxy_ip>:8080/v1/AUTH_system
