Pausing the Harmony Server
You can pause the Harmony server instead of shutting down the whole database, such as when you need to synchronize two different databases. Users will not be able to work while the server is in pause mode. In the case of saving a scene, a warning message saying that the server is paused will appear. The server will take note of the save command and commit the changes to be saved after it resumes.
The file paths for this procedure will vary depending on which platform you are using: Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
- In the terminal or shell, go to the bin folder of the Toon Boom Harmony application:
cd "\Program Files (x86)\Toon Boom Animation\Toon Boom Harmony 14.0 Premium\win64\bin"
- Mac OS X:
cd /Applications/Toon\ Boom\ Harmony\ 14.0\ Premium\ Network/tbs/macosx/bin
dbu -pto pause the server.
If you want to check the state of the server to verify that it is in fact paused, you can type
dbu -resto resume.
