I am new to Deadline, in the sense of never having installed it on a machine before.
I am using version 10.1.9.2.
- I have 3 computers all on the same local network. one acting as a server which is accessible by the other two as its mapped as a network drive with a static IP.
2.I installed the repository on the shared network drive on the server, not using certs etc, as I am in a remote location (no security threats around here, also nothing important being done)
I installed client on my other two machines (nodes)
During installation, it said my repository location is not accessible, because it is on a network, but gave me the option to proceed anyways, so i did.
installation finished, and i launched the monitor. It didnt pick up the repository first time, and i set it again… after which it connected. and every time I started it after that it takes two (2) tries before it successfully connects to the repository.
I use maya 2019, so started install for the submitter (found in the repo)
Keep getting this error: "Could not detect the Deadline Repository Directory because there was an error running deadlinecommand.exe from C:\Program files\Thinkbox\Deadline10\bin.
this is the correct location of the install on both my nodes, and i got the same error on both nodes.
as a test i installed client on the server, and the submitter installed successfully.
9.I tried the manual route, explained in the documentation, but deadline shelf doesn’t show in maya.
I am not a seasoned computer specialist, so would appreciate help in layman’s terms
