We recently upgraded our farm, clients and all, to 10.0.25.2 (didn’t go to 10.0.26 due to a known issue we didn’t want to hit). Since then, we’ve started to have users get this error when running the deadlinecommand.exe:
Error: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information. (System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException)
Our only solution at this time as been to downgrade the client to 10.0.6.3 (which is what we were on before). Tried a couple intermediate versions with no luck.
At first we thought it was just a couple users with exotic things installed, but it just cropped up on a couple more, despite running fine yesterday. We also determined that it appears to be a combo of the machine and the user account, as someone logging in to the same machine for the first time is okay, and if the user logs into a different unaffected machine, it works. So while it seems like Deadline isn’t directly at fault, some thing in the newer clients is more prone to hitting a conflict that we can’t adequately diagnose.
Any suggestions are welcome.
