Network Rendering Slaves Linux [BUG?]

PostSun Feb 25, 2018 11:52 am

I want to use my workstations as Network render Slaves.
But there is no chance to get it working :(

Is anyone out there using Linux who can try this and tell me that this a real bug in the Linux version.
(Still waiting for answers from the Linux support guys).

Setup:
Workstation: Ubuntu Linux 17.10, Fusion 9.0.2 build 15 and USB Dongle connected
Slaves: Laptop with Ubuntu Linux 17.10 , Fusion 9.0.2 build 15 and Zotac Workstation with Ubuntu 16.04
Networkshare: Synology NAS mounted on all systems with the identically mount path

Workflow:
1. Start Fusion on the workstation, open Render Manger, hit Pause Render.
2. Disable firewall on all machines (to make sure its not a firewall issue).
3. Start the FusionRenderNodes on the other computers.
4. In Render Manger, click add slave, insert IP of slaves.
5. It adds my slaves with a blue indicator, everything seems to be working so far.
5. Next I add a comp which is stored on my NAS (all computers have the NAS mounted in the same mount point, all computers have the same user) with a saver which is also pointing to the folder on the NAS.
6. Now I click resume render to start rendering.
7. Instantly all slaves switch to status failed, ERROR:could not load comp.

Further:
- When I switch my license dongle to one of the slaves, I can open the comp without issues.
- Tried also other network shares (samba folders) to make sure its not a synology issue.
- Tried to manually start FusionServer -S on master, did not help.
- Started the slave with: /opt/BlackmagicDesign/FusionRenderNode9/FusionRenderNode /path/to/test.comp --verbose --render --start 1 --end 10
This gives: Cannot locate license server Fusion Render Node halted or Cleanup licenses
- Exact same setup with OSX operating system = Networkrendering works out of the box.

Anyone out there having the same issue or even having a solution?
