[edit] Checklist

[edit] Set mysql to listen on public interface (transcoder)

on MCPServer host, edit /etc/mysql/my.cnf

sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf

then comment out

#bind-address =

restart mysql

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart

[edit] Install

Install the client package

sudo aptitude install archivematica-mcp-client

[edit] 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 add the following /var/archivematica/sharedDirectory nfs defaults 0 0

[edit] Sync Time with OpenNTPd

Un-comment the listen line in /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf on your master machine

sudo mousepad /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf
listen on *
sudo /etc/init.d/openntpd restart

on client machines edit /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf and add your newly created time server and comment out other servers

sudo mousepad /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf
server myMasterServerIP
#server otherServerAdress
#server otherServerAdress
#server otherServerAdress

[edit] 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=" "

[edit] Change the IP/Hostname

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

sudo mousepad /etc/archivematica/MCPClient/clientConfig.conf

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


[edit] 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

[edit] 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.
