Studio Default for Retries
« on: December 21, 2009, 06:06:39 PM »
Under the job submission dialog there are two options, Retry Subjob Process and Retry Frame/Work, both default to -1 (which is the "studio default"). I'm not sure what this value is or where it's set, and I can't find it in the help docs. Which config file is this value set in please? It'd be very handy to reduce the babysitting the farm needs.

Thanks!

Hi Yantor,

Currently, there isn't a way to set a site-wide default for the "retry" values.

If the Qube GUI is being used to submit jobs, then each user can save his/her
preference as the "default" for the jobtypes they use. 

For example for Maya, open QubeGUI, then "Submit > Maya Job..." then scroll
down to the "Detailed Qube" section, adjust the "Retry Subjob Process" (or
"Retry Frame/Work") value, then hit the "Set Defaults" button at the bottom.

The next time you bring up the dialog, the box will be pre-filled with the default
value you provided.
