Rendering Stops at 2am...hmmm... Nov. 5, 2015, 8:30 a.m.

Please do take a look at your Windows Update settings too. IIRC, they are set by default to update at 3AM and will automatically reboot your workstation if needed :cry:

HQUEUE client on OS X May 30, 2014, 9:03 p.m.

I believe that is due to OS X automatically removing (or unmounting) the Windows share in /Volumes/MainDirectory once you log out from your account on the Mac render nodes. This results in the HQueue client and Houdini not being able to find the MainDirectory share and the hqueue_mac_test.hipnc file.

One simple way is to leave your interactive user session logged on in the Mac render nodes with the Windows share mounted.

The preferred method is to use automount to create a permanent mount point and mount the Windows share for each Mac render node at bootup. You can find some useful tips on using automount in this blog:
