Installing portainer on xcp-ng
I am trying to install portainer in a Debian VM and all I have found is this 2021 article which I am not sure is still relevant today.
Could anyone please tell me if we still need to install xscontainer on the host?
$ yum install xscontainer $ xe-toolstack-restart $ xscontainer-prepare-vm -v vm<uuid> -u portainer
What is the 2023 way of doing this?
If I deploy a Kubernetes recipe from XOA, can I use it for Portainer
Thank you all in advance.
If Portainer is able to connect to the k8S API, yes it will work
@olivierlambert So, I just install Debian as usual and install portainer in that VM without running anything on the host. Correct? Also what happened to RunX?
For Portainer: yes
RunX is an interesting tech, but k8s cluster deploy is a bigger priority now. It's not a big deal now to run containers in "full VMs". We try to prioritize with our current bandwidth, even if we'd like to do everything at once it's not possible at the moment.
f Portainer is able to connect to the k8S API, yes it will work
Do I install Portainer on its own VM and connect it to the Kubernetes cluster or do I install it in the master node of Kubernetes?
I have never play with docker / Kubernetes so I am really have no idea what is best here. I want to install it for learning
I'm no k8s expert neither
@olivierlambert Thank you. Hopefully someone can chip in
@fred974 I suggest installing on its own VM. I have never used Portainer to manage Kubernetes (only Docker containers) however, I usually use Rancher to manage K8s and I always install on its own VM.
