View Full Version : Backburner 2012 - job completion issue

07 July 2011, 09:34 AM
In each backburner job folder is an xml (e.g. jobs\job_folder\?????_scenename\scenename.xml) with
<JobFlags> for completed tasks.

When a job is completed, the <Complete>No</Complete> flag should turn to <Complete>Yes</Complete>, at least with previous versions of Backburner it has been like this.
Since installation of Backburner 2012 this problem surfaced at random jobs, not all jobs (the job is completed, but the flag is not set to "Yes").

Can you confirm this issue/have any suggestions for me?

we had some trouble with latest backburner too,
but this was because we had newer client versions (upgraded rendernodes), and the manager server did not have the latest version.

As soon as I upgaded the manager server, it all went back to normal.

Is all backburner versions the latest on all machines?

Yes, that could be the problem.
Manager has been upgraded, but the rendernodes not yet.

Thanks for your reply, i will test this.
