Render job on single machine ? Hqueue ? Feb. 14, 2018, 10:38 a.m.

Hmmm. Can you post a screenshot of the exact error?

Also, does the ‘/Library/HQueueClient’ directory exist?

And does your ‘bgood’ user account have administrative privileges?

Another Houdini HQUEUE question please! Feb. 14, 2018, 10 a.m.

No worries. If you ever run a similar job again and encounter the same error then feel free to post the job output and diagnostics file here.


HQUEUE CLIENT WON'T simulate any of works. Feb. 14, 2018, 9:58 a.m.

Hmm. I can see consistent errors in hqnode.log that point to the client machine failing to connect to the server. The failure doesn't happen all the time just intermittently.

It's almost as if the network becomes temporarily unreachable.

I have a couple of questions:
- Is the client machine reporting a heartbeat? i.e. check the Last Heartbeat column in the clients table on the HQueue web interface
- Is the client machine consistently failing jobs? And is HQueue consistently unable to find the job output file?
- Is the HQueue Client service running on the client machine? Or are you manually starting the client by running C:/HQueueClient/hqnode.bat? And if the service is running, what logon account is used to run the service?
