I managed to install the Repo, Db and the worker on a Machine. Now I would like to send Jobs to the farm. I totaly fail while installing the Submitter for Houdini 18.5.
Im using the newest version of Deadline.
When I try to install the Submitter with the .run on linux, I get the following error:
There has been an error. No origin file found that matched [MY PATH]deadline/DeadlineRepository10/submission/Houdini/Installers/unknown variable source_dir/CallDeadlineCommand.py The application will exit now.
So then I tried installing it manually. I followed this documentation:
I run into many issues.
First off, This Dir does not exist:
So I just created them. I then coopied all the required files into the Dir.
Updating the MainMenuCommon.xm is not really possible since it does not contain something called “HOMEDIR”
there is another placeholder in there called “submitter_dir” (i think), so i tried to change that to the dir where the “DeadlineHoudiniClient.py” is in.
I then changed the Houdini.env just like in the documentation. Inside of Houidni the Deadline ROP shows up, but gives a lot of Python errors, and doesnt work.
Am I doing something wrong with the installation? Why is the auto installer not working? Would be great if it would. Thanks for your help!
