We are having huge issues rendering cross platform from Houdini on Deadline.
Submitting from windows and rendering on a linux node.
It seems like the path remapping is not working correctly with $JOB or $HIP in cached assets and ouput driver paths or even when using the fill network path.
There is an uncaught error showing up in the log:
2019-02-08 14:24:21: 0: STDOUT: [Redshift] Output file locked or path not available for writing. Skipping frame. (X:/17110093_achthamburg_researchanddevelopment/06_vfx/01_seq/deadline_test_190208/houdini/render/win2linux_env_job/deadline_test_190208_v001.Redshift_win2lin.0002.exr.lock)
I take this as an indication that the path remapping on the ouput driver didn’t work/wasn’t invoked.
I thought by setting the redshift env variable: REDSHIFT_DISABLEOUTPUTLOCKFILES to 1 it would fix the lock file problem and would give me the real error. But the output and also the output directory is not generated on the file server. It just keeps the lock error from showing up. The tasks are shown as completed but there is no ouput generated.
I would appreciate any help as soon as possible, to get our scene to render.
thanks in advance
