I downloaded the image precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img from , then I tried to import it into openstack using:

glance -v add name="ubuntu1204" is_public=true container_format=ovf disk_format=qcow2 < precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img

The import seems OK but when I launched it I encountered error.

Where did I do wrong and what's the right procedure of creating and importing image into openstack?
