Softimage 2012 – Setting up satellite rendering


The installer doesn’t set up the raysat satellite service for you, but it’s easy enough to do manually.

  1. Hi,

    I have done my render slave setting just like you describe in video but I have some issues at my main computer. I installed mi-raysat but it just can’t start. I’m seeing raysat server in windows’s services screen but when i try to start server, it comes an error says that

    ” The RaySatsi2013_3_10_1_7 Server on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other servers or programs”
    I’m using SI2013 SP1 with Windows 7 OS.
    Do you have any opinion for fix this ?

    By the way, many thanks for your support blog. Especially for “Top 10 for Learning ICE”.

    Thank you.

  2. Wow. In the “services” file I wrote this
    mi-raysatsi2013_3_10_1_7 7007/tcp
    instead of
    mi-raysatsi2013_3_10_1_7 7007/tcp #

    I added # char at the end of the line and raysat server running like a ferrari.

    Problem solved.

    Thanks.

  3. Hi,

    I have a problem with the satellite in Softimage 2013,I followed the video at the top of the discussion and it all went well, the service is running, the port 7027 is open, but Softimage don’t use the slave machine. Please help me?

    Thanks a lot.
    Bye

  4. I allways get the error when installing

    C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Softimage 2013\Application\bin>raysatsi2013_3_10_1_4se
    rver.exe \install
    raysatsi2013_3_10_1_4server error: (381) invalid command line parameter: \install

  5. ok. the services is running now on two maschines… but what should be in the rayhost file…i just put in the maschine name. 7027 of both moschines

    LO-X10584: 7027
    LO-X10589: 7027

    save and close

    then i started softimage, try to render something, but it still uses only one maschine… the main maschine.

  6. How can I check if the satellite maschine is really reachable for the master maschine?

    Or do I have to switch satellite rendering on? Where? I just changed the rayhost file in the user tools.
