Glance is a component of [[OpenStack]] that allows you to manage virtual machine images. It does have relatively good documentation available at http://glance.openstack.org/.
 
  
To install glance, follow these steps:
 
 
<console>
 
# ##i##emerge glance
 
# ##i##rc-update add glance-api default
 
# ##i##rc
 
</console>
 
 
This will start <tt>glance-registry</tt>, the actual repository service, as well as <tt>glance-api</tt>, which allows remote access to the repository via the Glance API.
 
 
To see if you can properly connect to the Glance API, use the <tt>glance index</tt> command, which should show an index of virtual machine images currently being stored. Since this is a brand-new install, this list should be empty:
 
 
<console>
 
# ##i##glance index
 
#
 
</console>
 
 
A virtual machine image can be added to Glance as follows:
 
 
<console>
 
# ##i##glance add name="Zenoss 3.2.1 VMWare Linux 64-bit" is_public=true container_format=bare disk_format=vmdk < zenoss-3.2.1.zip
 
========================================================================[100%] 225.027803M/s, ETA  0h  0m  0s
 
#
 
</console>
 
 
Once added, it will now show up in the index:
 
 
<console>
 
# ##i##glance index
 
ID                                  Name                          Disk Format          Container Format    Size
