Contents

Install

Install a Archivematica onto a client machine, as you normally would.

Set a static IP on the server machine

open /etc/network/interfaces

nano /etc/network/interfaces

then edit your interface entry (likely eth0) to look something like (you need to know your network details):

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.100
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        gateway 192.168.0.1

Configure fstab to automatically mount the remote shared directory

edit /etc/fstab

sudo nano /etc/fstab

assuming the IP of your NFS server is the same as your MCP-Server (ie 192.168.0.100) add the following

192.168.0.100:/var/archivematica/sharedDirectory /var/archivematica/sharedDirectory nfs defaults 0 0

Supported Modules

Comment out the upload and storeAIP tasks, from the supported tasks on the client machine, by prepending the line with a '#'.

sudo mousepad /etc/archivematica/MCPClient/archivematicaClientModules
#upload-qubit_v0.0="upload-qubit "
#storeAIP_v0.0="%clientScriptsDirectory%storeAIP.sh "
...

Change the IP/Hostname

Change the IP/Hostname the client machine is connecting to.

sudo mousepad /etc/archivematica/MCPClient/clientConfig.conf
MCPArchivematicaServer="server.local"
MCPArchivematicaServerPort="8002"

In the same file, /etc/archivematica/MCPClient/clientConfig.conf, you can set the max number of threads this client will run.

maxThreads="2"

Client Organization Setting

You will need to configure the organization settings, for the premis metadata, on each client.

sudo mousepad /usr/lib/archivematica/MCPClient/clientScripts/createXmlEventsAssist.py
 yourAgentIdentifierType="repository code"
 yourAgentIdentifierValue="ORG"
 yourAgentName="Your Organization Name Here"
 yourAgentType="organization"

The strings in the file populate these fields:

 <agent>
 <agentIdentifier>
 <agentIdentifierType>repository code</agentIdentifierType>
 <agentIdentifierValue>ORG</agentIdentifierValue>
 </agentIdentifier>
 <agentName>Your Organization Name Here</agentName>
 <agentType>organization</agentType>
 </agent>

Reboot

sudo reboot now

The client should connect on startup.

Note: to see the dashboard, or ica-atom, you'll need to visit the server's ip address, not localhost.
