Creating machine-list Files
The machine-list file identifies all the machines on your network that can be allowed to batch process Harmony files. The machines on this list represent the render farm.
- In a text editor, create a new text file.
- In the new text file, enter all the machine names in your render farm.
The order that you list machine names determines their order in the batch processing scheduling commands.
IMPORTANT: There must be no blank lines in the machine-list file.
For example, your machine-list might look like this:
- Your machine name is created when you install your operating system. You can list the machine name of a computer by typing the following command in the Terminal or command prompt:
hostname (Mac OS X)
uname -n (Linux)
- Save the file with the name machine-list in the /USA_DB/schedules/ directory.
