Checklist

Install

Install the client package

sudo aptitude install archivematica-mcp-client

Configure fstab to automatically mount the remote NFS share directory on client machines

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"

Disable the MCP Server

Each client node needs to have the MCP server disabled from starting at startup.

login to each node, remove /etc/init/archivematica-mcp-server.conf and reboot.

sudo stop archivematica-mcp-server
sudo rm /etc/init/archivematica-mcp-server.conf

Reboot

sudo stop openoffice-service; sudo start openoffice-service
sudo stop archivematica-mcp-client; sudo start archivematica-mcp-client

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.
