Hi Brian, I have good news and bad news.
First the bad news: The dashboard doesn’t provide a way to download a snapshot right now. This is just something that’s not provided in OpenStack’s implementation.
The good news is that you can download it using the command line client* for glance. Once you have that installed, you can perform the image-list subcommand to view the available images. You’ll see the default server images as well as your snapshots. Grab the ID of your snapshot and then use the image-download sub-command. Here’s the usage info:
[code]$ glance help image-download
usage: glance image-download [–file ] [–progress]
Download a specific image.
Name or ID of image to download.
–file Local file to save downloaded image data to. If this is not
specified the image data will be written to stdout.
–progress Show download progress bar.[/code]
