The first step to creating a Harmony database server is to create the database's file structure on the machine that will be used as the server.
- Open a Finder window.
- In Finder, navigate to Applications > Toon Boom Harmony 15.0 Advanced Network > Tools.
- Double-click on Configuration Assistant.
- In the Welcome screen, check the Create a new Toon Boom Harmony database and uncheck all other options.
In the Create Harmony Database dialog, you can configure the options for your database server. It is recommended to use the default options.IMPORTANT: If the Hostname field displays a value that ends with .local, it is highly recommended to remove this suffix before proceeding—see Setting the Server Hostname on macOS.
- If you want the database server to also host scene data, leave the Create an empty Harmony File System (/USADATA) option checked. If you want to only host scene data on other machines, uncheck this option.
- Click on Create.
When prompted, enter the username and the password of a user with administrator privileges.
The database's base file structure is now created. If you have opted to not create a scene data storage space, see Creating a Scene Data Storage Server on macOS to create a storage space for the scenes on your Harmony database.
