Configure the CRC Cell for Installation

As stated in the previous section, there are a number of files in the edu.harvard.i2b2.crc directory that will need to be edited to reflect the appropriate configuration at your site. The following outlines the steps that need to be taken during the configuration stage of the installation.

There are several steps that will need to be taken.

Step 1:   Change working directory
Step 2:   Configure the build properties
Step 3:   Configure the CRC application directory properties
Step 4:   CRC Loader properties: Configure FR cell properties
Step 5:   CRC Loader properties: Configure PM cell properties
Step 6:   CRC Loader properties: Configure data source
Step 7:   CRC properties: Configure PM cell properties
Step 8:   CRC properties: Configure data source lookup
Step 9:   CRC properties: Configure ONT cell properties
Step 10:   CRC properties: Configure CRC service account properties
Step 11:   CRC properties: Configure the optional "performance" properties
  • PDO Paging properties
  • Analysis Plug-in - Queue Properties
  • Setfinder Query - Timeout Properties
  • Setfinder Query - Lockout Properties
  • Setfinder Query - Temp Table Properties

Step 12:   CRC properties: Configure the data sources


The configuration files you will be editing are delivered with examples. In some instances these files may contain multiple examples for the three different database management systems supported by the i2b2.


The steps in this section are based on the following assumptions

Linux: your user has the appropriate administrative access to the opt directory.
Windows: You are logged into the Windows Command Prompt as an Administrator.

If you do not have the appropriate access you will have problems running the scripts.

Step 1: Change working directory

The first step in the cell configuration process is to change your working directory to the location of your edu.harvard.i2b2.crc folder.

Change Directory Command
CD YOUR_I2B2_SRC_DIR\edu.harvard.i2b2.crc


The change directory command shown above is written for Windows. The command itself is the same for both Linux and Windows with the only exceptions being the slashes in the path name and Linux does not include the "drive".

  • Linux Path: use a forward slash.
  • Windows Path: use a backward slash.


Linux Command:  CD /opt/i2b2/edu.harvard.i2b2.crc
Windows Command:  CD C:\opt\i2b2\edu.harvard.i2b2.crc
