Network render on workstation node
« on: March 17, 2015, 12:59:37 PM »
Hi there,
Is there anything I need to do to have deadline render jobs get picked up on my workstation which has a full license of forestpro installed using only the network-rendering version of the plugin? (ie not using up the full forestpro license?)

Actually, there is no need to configure it in any special way. Computers with Forest Pack Pro installed in the Workstation installation type will behave as render nodes when network rendering job is assigned to them. The license will not be in use for that process.

Just take in mind, that the rendering process always needs to be started from the workstation with license (to assign job to render slaves using network rendering service).

You can find more about this topic by checking this "Setting up/configuring client computers" thread.

Kind regards,
