As i already told before, everything in the task process output.
You can't control commands if you are not looking in output.

I have spent the past 2 weeks trying to get the cgru server and 1 slave machine to render together. I even went so far as to completely rebuild the slave computer from scratch and reinstall CGRU again. No matter what I have tried.....ie permanent drive mapping to server, path mapping ion cgru, etc....I cannot get the slave to do any work at all. All I see in the output logs is....

Code: Select all

HOSTNAME=kenneth-hpprobook
Read prefs: /home/render/.config/blender/2.79/config/userpref.blend
Error: Cannot read file '/home/render/Work/untitled.20180108195236.blend': No such file or directory

Blender quit
I get this error despite the fact that the slave can read & write to the folder on the server. I have created test text files in this folder from the slave and the server and they both read and write fine.

The only other logs that I see are the "LOG" showing....

Code: Select all

Mon 08 Jan 19:52.37 : SESSION #1: Starting on "kenneth-hpprobook"
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.39 : Finished error.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.39 : Automatically retrying error task1 of 3.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.39 : SESSION #2: Starting on "kenneth-hpprobook"
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.43 : Finished error.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.43 : Automatically retrying error task2 of 3.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.43 : SESSION #3: Starting on "kenneth-hpprobook"
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.47 : Finished error.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.47 : kenneth-hpprobook - AVOIDING HOST !
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.47 : Automatically retrying error task3 of 3.
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.49 : SESSION #4: Starting on "rfserver"
Mon 08 Jan 19:52.53 : Finished success.


And the ERROR LOG showing....

Code: Select all

Task[0] error hosts: 
kenneth-hpprobook: 3 at Mon 08 Jan 19:52.47 - ! AVOIDING !
The only indicator I see is that the rfserver is "AVOIDING" the kenneth-hpprobook host. But no indication as to why the host is being avoided

Hi.
The only error (and useful information) is:

Code: Select all

Error: Cannot read file '/home/render/Work/untitled.20180108195236.blend': No such file or directory
This is not a cgru-afanasy issue. Afanasy just run commands. Blender quits with an error. That is all.

Try to check this file existance from a machine that produce this error. Try to check permissions.
You should perform checking under the user that afrender service runs under.
