Submitted NUKE job stalls on Pending

I followed all the steps to have Nuke working with Deadline. Our Maya submissions work great. Nuke says job was submitted successfully, however, in Deadline it says Queued… and never moves.

Thanks in advance for the advice on how to fix this


Could you right click on that Nuke job and choose ‘Find Render Candidates?’ That will give you a window with all of your workers in it, each with a reason that they aren’t able to pick up the job.

If it looks like your workers should be able to pick up the job, try connecting to the Worker log by right clicking on the worker in the Monitor panel and choosing ‘Connect to Worker Log’. Sometimes if the worker is failing to check out a license it’ll be evident here.

Give that a shot and get back to us!
