[Openstack-operators] Vmware datastore backend storage for glance

Thanks Chris,

I have an issue, when I upload via Horizon, I receive an uploading progress bar at the bottom but I’m stuck in the same window I can’t go anywhere.
When the upload has finished, I received a blank page, and after going to the datastore I configured as the backend, I couldn’t find the image!
Does someone have any idea what could have gone wrong? I followed the exact steps to configure the datastore but I still can’t upload images to it…

If you start the upload from the CLI, you can pass --progress to glance image-create to see a progress bar. I don't think the glance CLI has a way to see the upload progress if you initiated the upload through horizon.

I have an openstack all-in-one on RHEL 7.

I configured my glance-api.conf file to use a datastore from my vcenter as a backend for images.

I restarted the glance-api service and it came up good with no errors, so I uploaded the image through the horizon dashboard, the image is a flat-VMDK of 2008R2 template.

My questions are:

1) Where can I see the progress through the CLI of the openstack node of the uploading process?

2) Why can't I see the image being uploaded to the datastore via the vsphere client?
