Hi Timur,

Sorry....I thought I was looking for the Output in Blender. I found the tasks and output in Afanasy. I did not see anything in the actual task list. What I did find was on the Error Hosts tab....

Code: Select all

Task[0] error hosts:
kenneth-hp-probook-4730s: 3 at Thu 28 Dec 21:17.34 - ! AVOIDING !
It appears Afanasy is specifically a voiding that slave.....and since it is the oly slave at the moment, that leaves the manager to do the rendering. Am curious why the slave is being avoided, or what could cause that???

Thanks,
Ken

Process finished with non success exit status.
Usually process ouputs what cause an error.
For example "texture ... not found", or "can't open scene, permission dinied", or what ever.
The most useful info in the task ouput.
Now did you get that log?
Along with a task "Log" there is an "Ouput" button.
The most imortant thing is a task ouput.
Without task ouput any error discussion plays no role.

OK...ran another test, just rendering 25 frames.....one master and one slave. Here are the logs from Frame 1 only, as that is the frame that tries to render on the slave first and then moves to the master. First the Error Log again....

Code: Select all

Task[0] error hosts:
kenneth-hp-probook-4730s: 3 at Fri 29 Dec 19:05.38 - ! AVOIDING !
Next is the Task Log....

Code: Select all

Finally the Output Log showing it completing on the master instead of the slave...

You are looking at a task output from a latest successful session on "render-manager".
But you should look at the output from a previous error sessions on "kenneth-hp-probook-4730s".

Will try a couple more logs from a new test.....this is the error-hosts log for the last test session I ran.

Code: Select all

Block['BLENDER_RENDER'] error hosts:

kenneth-hp-probook-4730s: 3 at Sat 30 Dec 18:20.14 - ! AVOIDING !

Task[0] error hosts:

kenneth-hp-probook-4730s: 3 at Sat 30 Dec 18:20.14 - ! AVOIDING !
And this would be the tasks log for the hp-probook from the same test session that was run....

Code: Select all

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.04 : Starting task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.06 : Finished task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.06 : Starting task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.10 : Finished task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.10 : Starting task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.14 : Finished task: [blender:1000] render: Test-3[BLENDER_RENDER][frame 1]
And lastly the job log from the same test session....

Code: Select all

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.03 : Initialized.

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.04 : Started.

Sat 30 Dec 18:20.14 : B["BLENDER_RENDER"]: kenneth-hp-probook-4730s - AVOIDING HOST !

Sat 30 Dec 18:21.45 : Done.
If I am still missing the correct log, then I honestly do not know how to find it. I am fairly certain I have clicked every tab I can find....LOL.

You should find how to get output from any previous session.
By default only the latest is shown, you pasted here an output from a success session.
But should look on the error session output.

I found the previous session log....hurray!

Code: Select all

HOSTNAME=kenneth-hplaptop
Error: Cannot read file '/home/render/Render/untitled.20171231091241.blend': No such file or directory

Blender quit
Apparently, the slave cannot find the file on the master, even though the master gives full write permission to everyone for that folder. I noticed the odd filename with extra date stamp, is this normal??? I saw the same on all logs....I am not sure why the slave cannot see that file. The slave has full read & write ability to that folder.....

AHA.....I finally got it to work correctly.....ONCE! I added the path to the server into the slave config and then ran another test. That one solitary test worked perfectly.....both machines rendered the test file completely to the end.

However, when I tried to run another test.....the slave quit working again, despite the path to the server still being set in the config. It is getting the same error message as before. No amount of restarting machines has fixed the issue either. I am sure this is not supposed to be this tricky, but apparently it is in my setup.......

What do you mean by:
- "I added the path to the server into the slave config"
?

I added the following to the config.json on the client.....

Code: Select all

"pathsmap":[
	["//rfserver/home/render/Render/","/media/Render/"],
]
After adding the pathsmap to the client, it rendered correctly one time. After that, it stopped working again....
