Installing the Batch Processing Daemon on GNU/Linux

The Harmony installer for GNU/Linux always installs daemon scripts on your machine, but does not enable them by default. Hence, there are two approaches to installing the batch processing daemon:

  • By enabling the daemon that was already installed with Harmony using the chkconfig command.
  • By running the Harmony installation script with the -p parameter.

This daemon runs through the user usabatch, so this user must be created prior to installing the daemon.

NOTE: The following steps indicate how to make batch processing launch on boot, via the user usabatch, If you prefer, you can make the database server launch on log-in as the logged-in user. For more information, see Running the Batch Processing Service on Log-In on GNU/Linux.
