Once you have a database file structure and the Harmony database server daemon, you can access the database from the machine on which it was created. To allow other client machines on your network to access the database, you must share its folders using NFS.
In a terminal, enter the following command:
$ sudo vi /etc/exports
Add the following line to allow clients to access the database files:
If your database server also has a scene data storage space, add a line with a similar syntax to share it. For example, if the scene data storage space is named /USADATA, add the following line:
- Save and exit.
Verify that the NFS exports are properly configured with the following command:
$ sudo nfsd checkexports
The command will not return anything if the exports file is properly configured.
Make sure the NFS sharing service is enabled with the following command:
$ sudo nfsd enable
If the service was already started, terminate it to force it to load your configuration changes.
$ sudo kill -1 `cat /var/run/mountd.pid`NOTEThe back quote (`) character is located at the top-left of the macOS keyboard on the same key as the tilde (~) character. Or simply reboot the computer.
Verify that the folders are shared:
$ showmount -e
The command should output a line for each directory you are sharing using the NFS protocol. For example:
You should now be able to mount the shared folders from any macOS or GNU/Linux-based machine on your local network.
