Why is cinder trying to talk to glance on my compute node?

Hello all,

I'm a first time Openstack installer here so apologies if this is a simple question. After following the install instructions and searching for hours I'm asking here.

I've created a 2 node install of Openstack.

Node 1 ( Controller that hosts Nova, Glance, Heat, Ceilometer, Cinder Node 2 ( Compute node that hosts nova-compute, nova-network, cinder-volume

Everything works fine until I try to create a cinder volume from an image (I can create an empty cinder volume)

When I attempt to create a volume from an image I get this error in /var/log/cinder/cinder-scheduler.log on the controller host:

It's clearly trying to contact glance on the compute node (, which will fail since glance is installed on the controller node instead.

My question is should it be doing that? I.E. is the problem that a) I need to install glance on the compute node or is the problem that b) I've got cinder misconfigured somehow and it should be trying to talk to the controller instead.

If its "a" then what should I install. The openstack docs left that out. If its "b" then can anyone give me a hint on what I need to change to fix this?

Thanks Everyone!
