under the "Path" variable the value is set to:

The slashes go the other way on the last item, backslash instead of forward. Not sure if that would prevent it from working but it's worth trying out.

ok, seem to have the path variable working, BUT seem to have another odd issue relating to it.

All servers are set with the same path variable so if I run "cmd" and type in "render" it says "missing file name" which I understand as being correct.

now... if I submit the backburner job with "render" in the in the "Render Path" setting it doesn't seem to work. It just gives a "CmdJob adapter: Create Cmdjob process error: 2"

if I change the path back to "c:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2014\bin\render.exe" it seems to submit it fine.

(this is only on the windows machines right now, but if it doesn't work like this I doubt its going to do any different from OSX)

I've never used Backburner but if it's anything like other queue managers it will have very detailed logs of exactly what happened. The summary of "error: 2" doesn't mean anything to anyone except for Backburner developers or gurus.

actually, the setup is completely different for OS X/Linux. See my linked article. Just type this in the terminal, and you'll be up and running in OS X:

echo "PATH=\$PATH:/Applications/Autodesk/maya2014/Maya.app/Contents/MacOS/" >> ~/.bash_profile
source ~/.bash_profile


for Linux it would be:

echo "PATH=\$PATH:/usr/autodesk/maya2014-x64/bin/" >> ~/.bash_profile
source ~/.bash_profile

I know that the setup is different... 2 completely different OS sets.

What i meant is that the principal/theory is the same. I.E. if i cant get it rendering across the windows boxes all setup right with the "render" command, what says it will work with this setup correct from the OSX boxes in a similar fashion?

in other words, I need to iron out the issue across the windows submission before I do the OSX machines
