Prerequisites

How to start a new NBIC Galaxy

  • Start a new VM with enough disk space. The best practice is to have an OS image (e.g., 30GB "NBIC-Galaxy-OS_ubuntu16.04_30GB") and a separate CEPH data image (e.g., 5TB "userdata_somb"). Make sure the VM name is "galaxy". Both OS and data images using for Galaxy are in persistent state, so all changes should be automatically saved.
  • Once the VM is up and running, run the ansible playbook by following the instructions at galaxy-docker-ansible.
    • the new VM will be "remote host" and HOSTNAME could be sombrerogalaxy.
    • All the configuration values need to be set properly in the setting files located at host_vars/HOSTNAME.

How to update NBIC Galaxy

  • Run the ansible playbook by following the instructions at galaxy-docker-ansible for update.
