Setting the current Folder (parm, Python) July 3, 2023, 2:42 a.m.

I am curious, why this works for the flipsolver:

But for the pyrosolver it doesn't:

Although the initial folder names are the same (defined by the type properties).

Both solvers are the SOP level HDAs:

HQueue: Submit job from local folder (not from network) June 14, 2023, 6:35 p.m.

I have also noticed in the documentation, that the proper place to set the HQROOT override is not in houdini.env, but here:

C:\HQueueClient\hqnode.ini (under the job_environment section)

https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/hqueue/configuration.html#client_config_options [www.sidefx.com]

HQueue: Submit job from local folder (not from network) June 14, 2023, 6:08 p.m.

If I understand it right, there is a way to submit from a local folder (without UNC)

- set the Network Folder Variable Name HQROOT to Windows Mount H:
- save the file in the H:\folder\file.hiplc
- submit the job
- on the server, H: is replaced with $HQROOT
- on the client, have the $HQROOT set in the houdini.env like this:
- so... on the client, HQROOT points at the network drive

Everything seems to work, is it common to have such overrides?
Local access to a drive (without UNC, when developing the file) can be much faster.
