Write Location Not Found (Windows)
« on: October 21, 2008, 05:35:49 PM »
When selecting an After Effects jobtype to render to our SAN drive the following message appears:

ERROR: file [R:/Qube Render/qube oct 20.aep] does not exist on the execution host [Render-1] at C:\Program Files\pfx\jobtypes/ line 684.
ERROR: there were at least [1] error(s) during errorCheckInputFiles()
ERROR: exception caught in ->run()
ERROR: Input file read-permission test failed at C:\Program Files\pfx\jobtypes/ line 311.

Why is it looking for drive R: of our SAN on the C: drive of the worker.   Its never going to find anything if its always looking at our c drive.

The problem you describe is that your R: drive isn't available to the Worker at execution time. The other errors are just script errors derived from fact that the After Effects Job Type execution module lives in c:\program files\pfx\jobtypes\aftereffects.

I recommend you launch the Configuration GUI on your submit host, and use Windows Drive Map to configure a drive map for R:. Input the appropriate credentials (you can use DOMAIN\USER format in the user area, and when you submit the job, the necessary information for giving the Worker access to map the share should be sent along with the job.
