FP on Domain with users
« on: April 19, 2007, 05:46:25 PM »
We work on a domain with user log ins.
We use vray to render with Distributed rendering as well as backburner for strips and network jobs.

Currently with the user data being stored in the log-in profile - we cannot use forest for our DR and net render jobs, because our other profiles can't access the local (typically admin) user's local settings.

Can we change were this plug-in info is stored?  Or just point the plugin to a network map directory?  It is just the distribution maps that we need access to for all users.

thanks,
ak

You can copy the distribution maps in any shared network map. These are the only files that Forest searchs for network rendering, except the own plugins (dlo, dlu...) that may be in a network plugin folder too.

See the details in our FAQ:

However, also is possible to disable the local profiles and work as Max 8 modifying this parameter of InstallSettings.ini:

useUserProfiles=0
