Subject [jira] [Commented] (DTACLOUD-578) Deltacloud and Rackspace

Hi Cristovao:                                                              
ok - finally got some time to look into this. So I checked the APIs for "first gen" servers
@ [1] and "next gen" servers @ [2]. Now from a quick look the API calls for getting the images
are the same in both APIs. I can't see a problem in the driver code (especially as both version
of the API are the same) though the 'cloudservers' rubygem [3] the driver uses seems to be
a little old -but again, can't see any obvious problems with the way that calls the /images
in RAX.
So I suspect it is the authentication endpoint which is causing problems here. This was confirmed
when I saw that for both first and next gen APIs the authentication endpoint is given as the
same [4][5] - they both point you at the 'next gen' api interface - which may be the reason
you are only seeing the next gen images as you started the server with:
deltacloudd -i rackspace -P
i.e. specifying the 'next gen' auth. endpoint. After a little digging around I found the 'legacy'
authentication URL for v1 of the API [6]. Can you try
deltacloudd -i rackspace -P
and see if that lists the older gen images? Let's take it from there. With respect to the
other issue mentioned here (can't boot new instances) can you give me some more information?
Are you getting an error?

thanks, marios

> Hi,
> I have several snapshots in Rackspace, being only one of them a 'New Generation Image'.
I was trying out Deltacloud with Rackspace's cloud, and I've noticed that when I list the
available images (through the DC's web interface) I only get the New Gen. one...and not the
older ones. 
> On the other end, and completely aside from Deltacloud, when I am using the nova client
from my UI and I do nova image-list, I can only see the older images and not the New Gen one.

> Can someone explain these please?
> Thanks
> P.S.: I am now adding some new information to the same issue. I just realized that I
can not boot new instances on Rackspace, even though I can list instances and images and fully
interact with Rackspace through the DC web interface. I am just doing the follwoing:
>              deltacloudd -i rackspace -P
-v -r
> Thanks in advance for the help
