We have an IT department that is in another state, already works remotely, and unfortunately for us, sporadically. Due to this, we often need to handle urgent matters ourselves - and Keyshot Network Rendering is often a painpoint for us.
Versions: our Keyshot Network Rendering Server, for whatever reason, needs a lot of love, about once a month needs to be rebooted, and about every other month something happens that requires re-installation of the KS Network Rendering Master. Every single time this happens, our IT installs the LATEST version of the KS Network Rendering Master. This kicks every single machine we have on our render farm off. In the Monitor app, they all just say "Updating" forever and ever and ever. The only fix, is to get into those machines and install the SAME version of Network Rendering... the problem is - KS Network Rendering is updated so often, that we sometimes CAN'T GET THE SAME VERSION as what's been recently installed on our MASTER.
So we have to scramble every time, download, take a thumbdrive around, etc. and then we'll have a random machine that gets restored due to it's own issues, and then we're asking eachother "who has version 9.x.x of KS network rendering?" we scour our downloads folders, and thumbdrives, and then we have to get IT involved AGAIN and ask them to update to the latest version that's available on the web.
It is a vicious circle, and it's causing us a huge problem every few months.
Just put up a repository somewhere of every version of KS network rendering to DOWNLOAD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. You already have an archive page, but there's no KS NR downloads there.
I BEG YOU, please.
Hi there, just curious - why was this closed?
We have started the migration of moving the Network render installers So we have closed the issue with in our Support system. As far as the forum post this will stay open until we have a valid link that I can post for you. we just don't want to have two tickets open for one issue.
Sorry if it was confusing.
