good morning good people, is there a way to pass a local chart tar archive to the helm-install job pod which is responsible to deploy an Helm manifest file? I want to install metallb in an offline environment so I put the images under the
and specified a manifest file in
. The problem of course, since it is airgapped, it's that the job pod report the following error:
Error: failed to download "metallb/metallb" at version "0.12.1"
How may I provide to the job pod a tar.gz with the chart definition? Is it possible? Thanks in advance for your help

You need to restart k3s after adding a tarball to the agent/images folder. The tarballs in that directory are only imported at startup.
a better, more reliable solution for airgapped clusters is to set up a private registry

I think I'll apply the second solution since it also help me with future upgrades. Thanks as always
