Mental Ray for Maya
« on: April 19, 2010, 11:01:18 AM »
What needs to be set up on a worker host in order for Mental Ray for Maya to function correctly through Qube (not Satellite or Stand alone)? It has been a while since I initially built the farm, so with some inconcistencies between nodes and not being a Maya expert I find that I can't remember.

You'll need to have the Maya jobtype installed, and have your licensing working outside of Qube.

If this is a new(er) version on Maya, and if you're running in proxy mode on Windows, you'll need to start the interactive version of Maya at least once as the proxy user on every worker to create the Maya projects/prefs/scripts directories for that version of Maya.

Ok thanks I will make sure I run the app.

So I don't need a maya.rayhosts file or anything else?
