So these two old fixed bugs suggest that it should work.

On a freshly installed Mitaka release KVM based deployment, I just booted
up an instance, paused it and created snapshot without any problem.

Any thing show up on Nova or Glance logs? Is debug enabled?

Do you have sufficient disk space for snapshot?  If i recall the instance
is paused snapshot is created and then uploaded to glance.
You need to have enough free space of snapshot to be created.

Does this happen on other instances or all of them?

Does this happen with admin or another user?
