XO from source - no plugins, no config import
I have tried to follow the instructions, twice (on 64-bit Debian 9.9, and again after upgrade to Debian 10, as VM under XCP-ng 8.0) with the same results each time - basically XO works, but:
- Settings / Plugins - "No plugins found" (I'd like to look at xo-server-sdn-controller for example)
- Settings / Config - "No config import available for Community Edition"
Are there some important steps I missed, or is some $$$ required to make that work? Thanks!

You need to create a symlink from the directory containing the source for the plugin into
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/so that the plugin will load at XO startup. For xo-server-sdn-controller, this should look something like --
ln /opt/xen-orchestra/packages/xo-server-sdn-controller /usr/local/lib/node_modules/
Settings / Config - "No config import available for Community Edition"
This is an arbitrary restriction they have included when you are not running their pre-built appliance. Since you have the source code, you can manually remove this restriction.
P.S. There are bash scripts that will handle all of this for you automatically.
@Danp we are about to remove this restriction.
I wasn't aware of the hardcoded /usr/local/lib path as everything is running from $HOME/xen-orchestra and node_modules directory full of symlinks was there too. It works now - thanks!
Testing xcp-ng 8.0 on two servers with ha-lizard-noSAN, so far so good. Now, where to find more settings of openvswitch? For the redundant replication link (DRBD/iSCSI) between two machines without a switch, I'd like to set up a bridge with (R)STP between one 1Gb and one 10Gb interface, where 1Gb is a backup if 10Gb link fails. The ha-lizard reference design calls for bonding two 1Gb interfaces with LACP and this was easy to set up in XenCenter, but bonding requires interfaces of the same speed.

See me previous post here -- https://xen-orchestra.com/forum/post/5072
I'm guessing that you were missing the symlinks for the plugins, otherwise they should have been present in XO.
