Is there a way to disable the manual “launch slave” options from the Deadline launcher?
This is to prevent users (students) from starting the Deadline slave from their local PCs which will consume one of the Deadline licenses. (instead of using it for the actual render servers).
I have disabled “Launcher Menu” the “Everyone” group in the User Group Permissions settings but it seems not to be working.
In our environment (very large University) we have many (180+) PCs and we don’t know in advance which specific machines will be used to launch the Deadline monitor. Also, these PCs get replaced or swapped around quite frequently so manually selecting and disabling the slaves from the slave list menu is not feasible in the long term.
