About User Creation for Batch Processing in Control Center

If you intend to use the batch processing feature in Harmony or if you are installing the application on the server machine, you must create:

  • An operating system user called usabatch
  • A Harmony user name called usabatch through the Control Center module.

Harmony uses this user profile during batch rendering.

IMPORTANT: It is important to verify that these users exist before starting a project and setting the batch processing.
  • Operating System Users

Windows: The usabatch operating system user profile was automatically created by the installation wizard.

Mac OS X: The usabatch operating system user profile must be created manually or using the configuration assistant.

Linux: You must manually create the usabatch operating system user.

Regardless of the operating you are using, a usabatch user account must exist on your operating system. If you need to create this account, see your system administrator.

  • Harmony User Names

The usabatch Harmony user is created during the installation process on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. There is no need to create it manually unless it was deleted. To manually create the usabatch Harmony user, refer to the Toon Boom Harmony Installation Guide.
