Creating the usabatch User on macOS

Before you install Harmony, you must create the usabatch user account on the server and on all the workstations that will performing batch processing (computers that will be part of the batch rendering or vectorizing farm). A number of services, including the tbdbserver, license server, batch processing and WebCC service are started using the usabatch account.

The usabatch account must have administrator rights on the computer.

NOTE: If you are upgrading from a previous version of Harmony or Opus, you may not need to create the usabatch account since you will use the same account that was created from the previous installation.
