Truecharts - Xen-orchestra - template issue

Hi All,

Im trying to install the latest truecharts version of Xen Orchestra on TrueNAS-SCALE-
The version of the application is: 5.132.0_7.2.0
When i install with host paths or PVC i get the following error:

 Error: Traceback (most recent call last):

Has anyone got any insights how i can fix this?

I used truecharts in the beginning and it was nothing but a headache and constantly breaking. If it were me I’d install the container manually from docker.

Thanks. Will have a go at installing it manually. Not touched Kubernetes so should be a learning curve for me

It isn’t too bad.

  1. Create datasets for persistent storage
    a. xoserver dataset
    b. redis dataset
  2. Navigate to https://(host)/ui/apps/available/TRUENAS/charts/ix-chart/install
    a. Application Name = xen-orchestra
    b. Image repository = ronivay/xen-orchestra
    c. port forward -
    container port = 80
    node port = (insert available port from host)
    protocol = TCP protocol
    d. Storage - host path volume
    host path = /path/to/xoserver Mount path = /var/lib/xo-server
    host path = /path/to/redis Mount path = /var/lib/redis
    e. Portal Configuration
    Enable WebUI Portal = :white_check_mark:
    Port = (insert available port from earlier)
