I installed openstack using conjure-up(single node installation - all services of openstack on one server, this is for experimental purposes) and then was able to upload couple of sample images as follows
glance image-create --name "xenial-cloud1" --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file xenial-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img
the size of this image is around 280MB.
Then I proceeded to upload an image of size 12GB which is a ubuntu 16.04 Desktop image with Hawkbit installed on it.
glance image-create --name "ubuntu-16-hawkbit-qcow2" --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file hawkbit-image.qcow2 --progress
It failed at 70% giving the below error
Error finding address for http://ip_of_ glance:9292/v2/images/7dc43b2a-5d42-41fc-acbe-16493f0d8395/file: Unable to establish connection to http://:9292/v2/images/7dc43b2a-5d42-41fc-acbe-16493f0d8395/file
after this even when I try to upload a smaller size image it doesnt work.
All the services are up and running when I check status with the command juju status
Even glance related commands like glance image-list also give the same error
Glance service is listening on port 9292 , i sshed into the glance node and ran
ubuntu@juju-64a1f1-4:~$ sudo netstat -plnt | grep ':9292' tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:9292 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1682/haproxy tcp6 0 0 :::9292 :::* LISTEN 1682/haproxy
So am not sure, whats the problem. Any help to resolve this issue will be appreciated.
Note: This is the first time I am using openstack, so am a novice, please bear if ive missed out giving certain details or gone about things in the wrong fashion.
when running lxd init before installing openstack using conjure-up, we chose 27GB as the size of the loop device(it was the default one indicated) storage backend as zfs
UPDATE: When I set the
default_store = file
I am able to upload an image which is really small like 13MB or so but a bigger image throws me an error described here : https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/27033/image-storage-media-is-full/, thats because I don't have enough space on filesystem_store_datadir = /var/lib/glance/images/
I figured that my initial default_store was set to rbd after I finished installation using conjure-up, which is related to ceph. Also I've notice that ceph.service is active but in exited state, I tried to restart it but it wont leave the exited state
ceph.service loaded active exited LSB: Start Ceph distributed file system daemons at boot time
If I can get this to be working, I'm sure things will return to normal from where I left off when I could upload two images successfully (when file store was set to rbd)
Is it possible to increase the space in /var/lib/glance/images/ post installation or even point filesystem_store_datadir to another machines path which has space on it ?
