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.

NOTEThe 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.
