FP6 silent install question
« on: June 15, 2018, 06:31:33 PM »
Is silent installation of forest pack 6 on rendernodes the same as in previous versions?
When installing FP on my workstation I defined a network path for the libraries and assets.
Shouldn't there be a parameter to tell the rendernodes where to look for the assets on the network?

Fo the last silent install I used this line which worked fine:
ForestPackPro541.exe /S /MAXVER=max2016-64 /MAXDIR=C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016 /LICMODE=rendernode

Can I reuse it after updating the file name?

Yes silent install should be modified if You want to speedup and save bandwidth with parameter :
/SHAREDFOLDER=<network path for shared files>

You will also need to separately run update manager to install those updates.

We are preparing a guide for silent/offline/customPath render node install.

Stay tuned.
