Release Name: NITRC-CE Install Package v0.47.3 (Ubuntu 16.04 and contains optional HCP packages)

The purpose of the NITRC-CE install script is to convert any Ubuntu 16.04 machine (real or virtual) into a NITRC-CE instance. Since it will install a number of packages including ubuntu-desktop and packages from NeuroDebian, it may take several hours to execute. Restart your system after install. The install process runs an Ansible playbook whose progress will be displayed in the command window.

The HCP version of NITRC-CE can be installed with this package. Once completed, you will be able to use a web browser to connect to the machine and set up a NITRC-CE user. Please see for full usage instructions.
