Re: Restrict system block commands to server

These are definately not waking up, I've also set af_wolwake_interval to 1, just incase. There aren't any wake-on-lan jobs being spawned into the system job queue, if that's relevant? Can't see any error in the logs (other than the JSON ones we spoke about a number of weeks ago.) What are the criter...

Re: Restrict system block commands to server

One small point- how do I enable AF to automatically wake render nodes when needed?
I've read mentions of the capability of AF "Deciding" to wake nodes, but not sure how. Waking manually is working great!

Thanks!

Re: Restrict system block commands to server

Solved! I've set up extra patterns in the farm.json file:
global defaults set without any services
new group with regex mask for all render nodes - has all services except wol
new group with server in it, has only the wol service.

I love the control of Afanasy once you get your head around it!

Restrict system block commands to server

I've got a configuration challenge I'm not sure how to approach. Currently the wake-on-lan task blocks are ran by any render node, Is this possible to run from the server instead? either through a configuration change, or setting the server up as a render node only taking wake-on-lan type jobs? Our ...

Re: Pre task command

Brilliant idea, I have it working now, thank you!

Sadly I don't have control over the operating systems we use for workstations/rendering, it's a large university with plenty of bureaucracy!

I appreciate the help as always!

Re: Pre task command

As a side note: I've looked into command concatonation, using & and && to join the commands together, but this seems unreliable once submitted. If i take the following string: call \\server.com\live\_PLUGINS\_TOOLS\_HELPERSCRIPTS\pushDrive.py r: \\server.com\renderfarm\rjh1\MeshroomTrial_003 & if NO...

Pre task command

Hello! I'm writing a custom submission script for Meshroom, but due to a bug in incrimnetalSFM, it can't execute from windows UNC paths, so needs a windows drive letter mapping. Is it possible to assign pre-task commands for each render to run before executing a task? I know that pre-commands can be...

Re: Error: JSON.parse

Hey Timur,

Binaries from sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cgru/fi ... p/download

It's not an essential feature for me, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't having other unexpected effects!

I've not compiled before, but not afraid to look into it! Thank you!
