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

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.
