Xen Orchestra proxies - Test Feedback
The patch is finally here
Sorry for the delay
How to test?
- Select the
latestchannel on your XO appliance
- Upgrade to Xen Orchestra 5.43.2
- Go to the Proxies page and either Deploy a proxy or upgrade the appliance of your existing ones
- Full Backup
- Disaster Recovery
Scheduled for Step 2 at the end of the month.
- Network configuration for the proxy appliance
- Delta Backup
- Continuous Replication
- Detailed logs, they are currently empty
- Restoring backups
Work-around: create a normal remote (not linked to the proxy) connected to the same storage and import via the XO appliance
Thank you for your feedbacks

@Franck-Leclerc feel free to try again now
Thanks for the update.
I can now backup a VM with the proxy

Are proxies an XOA-restricted feature? If yes, then the GUI should indicate that and prevent you from attempting to deploy when built from source. If no, then this functionality is still broken (
TypeError: app.getResourceCatalog is not a function) when built from source.
Proxies are like XOA (or XO Hub templates): they are pre-configured appliances hosted on xen-orchestra.com, explaining why you can only deploy them from XOA.
However, you should be able to use the sources to register a proxy yourself, but we'll document that later (it's still in dev and code is moving fast).
Anyway, we'll expose that in the UI, thanks for the feedback
@olivierlambert Hi, did this ever get documented? I've got a bit of a Christmas project in the pipeline setting up a XCP-ng host at my parents and would want it to back up the VMs locally, but ideally without running another local XO; so basically the exact problem a proxy would resolve.
I guess registering it, in Redis I presume, would be easy enough, but what about the proxy VM itself?
I don't think it's documented, the only supported process is by using XOA, but we might have a dedicated README somewhere I assume.
@julien-f do we have a "manual" procedure anywhere?
@olivierlambert No, there are no manual procedure available at this time.
We are focusing first on getting something correctly integrated from XOA, it doesn't mean it will be exclusive to XOA.
It's just we are first focusing on a completely "known" environment (XOA), but I think at some point we'll be able to provide manual setup for people who want to do it from the sources
