Hi there,

Recently I've upgraded my Houdini version to the latest production build; 18.5.499 but I'm having issues with getting Deadline to work with H18.5 PDG.

Here's the error log:
======================================================= Error ======================================================= Failed to load the plugin because: Could not initialize the plugin sandbox (Deadline.Plugins.PluginException) ======================================================= Type ======================================================= RenderPluginException ======================================================= Stack Trace ======================================================= at Deadline.Slaves.SlaveRenderThread.e(String aji, Job ajj, CancellationToken ajk) at Deadline.Slaves.SlaveRenderThread.b(TaskLogWriter aje, CancellationToken ajf) ======================================================= Log ======================================================= 2021-04-09 16:32:51: 0: Loading Job's Plugin timeout is Disabled

I'm currently running Deadline Release (dc7449244) on my farm. The default submit job via deadline ROP works but it doesn't work with PDG which is weird. Before I upgraded to H18.5, H18.0 PDG works right out of the box and no issue at all.

All the threads I've looked at indicates that firewall or VPN/DNS error but all ports are open and I'm still getting errors on Deadline with PDG.

Hope anyone or support can give some pointers in fixing this issue with PDG & Deadline.

Thank you,

Don't have a solution, but have the same problem. Not sure what could be causing this, it worked fine in previous versions.

Same issue here. Houdini 18.5.532 and Deadline
Have you tried different versions of Houdini?
