[openstack-dev] Glance to refer images on a image library rather than upload

Hi All,

Is there a way to add an image from an existing image library (file share)
into glance so that the image is not copied to the glance server?
When ever nova boot is used, the image is then directly copied from the
image server to the compute node.

I am not sure if using the location option as http/s3/switf url still
copies the image or references it.
glance add location=http+s3://AWSACCOUNTID:<email address
name="My S3 Image" disk_format=ami container_format=ami is_public=True

VK Kumar.
