Thanks for the reply. That is good to here.
However, My baremetal host is CentOS 6.4 so i am unable to run diskimage-builder.
Is there another way to create images for baremetal? Or perhaps pre-made images somewhere?

Hi Jake,

Any Linux OS that can be PXE booted should work. You just need to be
able to upload a compatible kernel and initrd and attach them to the
image in glance. We have a script which will do just that (note that it
requires diskimage-builder too).
