RHEV : Unable to add Openstack Glance as a External Provider.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • As per the RHEV-M 3.3 release note it is now possible and supported to add glance from Openstack as an external image provider. However when trying to do so, the connectivity test fails with the message
 "Failed to communicate with the external provider" 
  • In RHEV 3.5 I can see the following errors in the /var/log/ovirt-engine/engine.log while trying to add the glance provider:
