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. You can accomplish this by running the create_usa_db script from Harmony's bin directory.
The basic database file structure is in the USA_DB directory. However, this is not where scene data is stored. If you want the database server to be able to host scene data, you can also create an empty scene data storage space alongside your database file structure.
In a terminal, navigate to the directory in which the Harmony binaries were installed:
$ cd /usr/local/ToonBoomAnimation/harmony[Edition]_17/lnx86_64/bin
Run the database creation script:
$ sudo ./create_usa_db
The script will create the basic file structure for a Harmony database in /USA_DB.
In a terminal, enter the following command:
$ sudo mkdir -m 777 /usadata000
A scene data storage directory named usadata000 is now located at the root of your database server's file system.
