Vray updating instances
Ensure any applicable firewalls are opened to allow pass-through communication.
Typically if in doubt, opening TCP/UDP ports in the range: 20200-20300 will cover all V-Ray implementations for DBR.
Once you’re happy with the nodes that have picked up the job, you can initiate the distributed render manually from within the application (ie: Rhino or Sketchup).
This will likely require manually configuring your V-Ray Server list.
Note, if you modify the Maximum Servers value, the job’s frame range will be updated when this button is pressed or if “Automatically Update Server List” is enabled.
The following procedures describe how to install the integrated V-Ray DBR submission script for 3ds Max.This makes our system more flexible and resilient to crashes as when we terminate the V-Ray DBR job in the Deadline queue, the Deadline Slave application will ‘cleanly’ tidy up V-Ray Spawner/Standalone and more importantly, any DCC application (3ds Max/Maya) or Standalone instances which it in turn has spawned as a child process.This can be helpful if V-Ray DBR becomes unstable and a user wishes to reset the system remotely.Note that the V-Ray Spawner/V-Ray Standalone process can sometimes take a little while to initialize.This means that a server in the Active Server list could have started the V-Ray Spawner, but it’s not fully initialized yet.
