Configuration

After installing Toon Boom Harmony, you need to configure the database parameters depending on your machine's setup and third-party software, and restart your anti-virus settings.

1. Configuring Toon Boom Harmony
2. Sharing Toon Boom Harmony Related Directories
3. Configuring the License
4. Turning on the Anti-Virus Software

You can use the Toon Boom Harmony Installation Wizard at any time to:

Modify the Toon Boom Harmony server or client configuration
Configure batch processing
Configure scanners
Prepare a client to be the client of a Linux server
Add Harmony's path to the Path environment variable

After installation, you must set up the database configuration for computers running Toon Boom Harmony.

1. Setting Up the Database Server
2. Setting Up the Database Client

Setting Up the Database Server

The Database Server controls all interactions with the contents of the Toon Boom Harmony database. It processes all requests to open, read or update files, keeping track of files that are locked so others cannot edit them.

Setting Up the Database Client

After you have configured the server, configure all the client machines that will connect to the server. Use the Toon Boom Harmony Configuration Wizard to connect client computers to the database.

Sharing Toon Boom Harmony related directories does not need to be done in a typical installation. This is required only when the shares were not created correctly during server configuration. For example, this can happen when simple file sharing was not turned off before running the Configuration Wizard on the server. Or when you have backed up the usadb and usadata folders before installation, you may have to share them when putting them back into place.

NOTE: If you are upgrading from a previous version and changed the USA_DB and USADATA name during upgrade, make sure to return to the normal names before continuing.

Restoring Backed Up Data

Setting Up the License on Client Workstations

An Admin account is required to set this up. After activation, you can log in as client.

Inform your System Administrator before turning your anti-virus software back on.

Turning on the Firewall

The process to do this is basically the reverse of the procedure used to deactivate the firewall.

Inform your System Administrator before proceeding with this task.
