New installation of Redshift won't render Houdini scenes, renders Maya scenes fine

Hi,
We were rendering just fine, then had to add some Redshift licenses, so we purchased from Maxon. They are using a new licensing method, so that might be a culprit, but our Maya rendering pipeline is still working as well. I can also render the .rs files produced via deadline using the exact command from the log. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated. Please see the log below.
Thanks
Josh

update, I was able to get Redshift to render using command script submission. So in my troubleshooting, it seems to get tripped up submitting a redshift standalone job generated by Houdini (just tested, it fails on .rs files generated from Maya). I’m starting to think we may need to update our deadline version from 10.1.13.1 Release to the current 10.1.18.5 Release.
