I recently tried to set up MRSat for maya 8.5sp1 (of course in combination with maya8.5sp1 unlimited)
1x Windows-PC (firewall disabled, only av)
1x MacBook Pro (OS X or win)
if I set up a win-only based environment (macbook pro with win), distribution works as expected with MR. btw my maya.rayhost lies in /*Userfolder*/maya/8.5/prefs/ on each machine.
when running maya on win-doze, macbook pro under osx (mrsat installed; awaiting jobs), distribution also works fine (win is distributing; macbook pro is only calculating.
the other way round, distribution doesn't take place. WHY? I placed maya.rayhosts in every proposed folder (one after the other and all together), but maya doesn't seem to look for that file when initiating a mr-render (actually I can't say that for sure because I can't find the mr Output Window, it doesn't start automatically as it does on windows).
What will I have to do to make maya look for maya.rayhosts in os x. How do I make mr look for other nodes?
btw maya.rayhosts looks like (for win and os x):
