=======================================================

My question is: why this now, its working fine a few days ago and now don’t work anymore. the license on the server is ok, the slave show the license “permanet”, other farms working nice, but a few machines stopped the draft form nothing.


#2

As far as I’m aware, Draft requires an active subscription to work. I think Deadline keeps running indefinitely on the current version without the need to renew the subscription, but Draft is one of the modules that do not.

Would probably be best if someone from Deadline could chime in with a confirmation or correction to this though.
