unable to get the swift account details on another remote machine

Asked by vikrant on 2013-10-01

HI All,

I have configured swift with swauth authentication on a physical machine(machine A). I have also configured the storage node in this machine.

i am successfully able to create swift account, when i execute

"swift -A -U test:tester -K testing stat -v " i am getting the account details

but when i am executing it from an another physical machine(machine B) by giving

"swift -A http://<IP of machine A>:8080/auth/v1.0 -U test:tester -K testing stat -v" i am getting following error

"Account HEAD failed: 401 Unauthorized"

my question here is why on machine B the error is saying the address as "" when i am giving the actual IP of machine A in the command "http://<IP of machine A>:8080"

I need to execute this from machine B for my cloud setup.

Please help

Are you change the following commands?
Modify memcached to listen on the default interfaces. Preferably this should be on a local, non-public network. Edit the IP address in /etc/memcached.conf, for example:
perl -pi -e "s/-l $PROXY_LOCAL_NET_IP/" /etc/memcached.conf
are you sure proxy server ip that
This error is make incorrect configuration.

Samuel Merritt (torgomatic) said : #2

When the client authenticates, it receives a token and a storage URL. That storage URL contains "".

You'll need to consult the swauth documentation for how to fix that.

You must change configuration files. and you can try changed ip.

Can you help with this problem?
