  1. Hello, Thanks for the demo.

    I followed the steps in the last demo for KPIMON-go xApp but the pod stays in the "ImagePullBackOff" state because of not building the Docker image from the Dockerfile.

    Would you please provide instructions to build the Docker image? 

    Any help would be appreciated.

    1. If you want to build the KPImon xApp please contact the "ric xapp" project. If you have the docker image, try to "docker pull" the image first (from one of the nodes where Kubernetes is deployed). This should rule out issues in the docker setup.

  2. Hello, Thoralf Czichy. Thanks for your demo.

    I'm now trying to implement RIC in our lab by following the instructions in the demo. The instruction looks straightforward but I'm stuck in the step for k8s installation. As demonstrated in the guidance, I used ./install_k8s_and_helm.sh  However, the outcome of this command didn't seem to be successful. Since I'm not an expert in Linux, this issue makes me frustrated as I am not sure about the right direction to debug. 

    The execution outcome of this command is very long so I inserted a txt file for your reference. Please could Thoralf or anyone in the community take a look and advise? Thank you in advance. 

    1. Looks like you did not run the script form the root account. The script needs to be run form the root account.

  3. Is there any guidance or demo video to connect near-RT RIC and non-RT RIC?


  4. Hello. Thank you for nice demo.

    I have a question about e2esimu (gnbe2oransimu) from 12:22. I want to know more detail about that.

  5. Hi Thoralf Czichy ,


    The curl command (curl -X GET http://service-ricplt-e2mgr-http-ip:3800/v1/nodeb/states 2>/dev/null|jq) returns empty brackets. Some steps changed in the tutorial above because the project seems to be moved to github, but I think the error I am facing is unrelated. Any guidance to solve this issue?

  6. Thanks for your Demo Dear Thoralf Czichy.



    1. Hi Salam, did you manage to reproduce the steps in the demo?

  7. Hi everybody,

    I have an issue during the registration phase in the RIC Platform, suddenly the communication shut down.
