By following the installation docs for Rocky I can get Glance installed just fine on the controller (works great!), but following that same documentation on a separate server I cannot get it to authenticate. It's probably just something I'm doing, but I've run out of ideas on what to check next (both the controller and the separate server use the same auth and config), and I just want to make sure it's possible. It's also possible I'm losing my mind, so, there's that. =P

There's no such thing in the OpenStack code as a "controller". This
thing only lives in the docs and in how people decide to deploy things.
Users are free to install any component anywhere.

Indeed, you must be doing something wrong.
