We have one license and 6 render nodes. So my problem I’m having is that if I am rendering on ANY node I can’t render on my workstation. It keeps giving me this error

ERROR: - Maximum number of licenses reached. Render cannot continue. To render on this computer, you must first shut down one or more instances of Maxwell running on other networked computers, then restart this application.

I have gone around and made sure all nodes were shut down and it still gives this error. I use to be able to be render to our render farm and still render to my workstation. Has Next Limit changed their license policy, or am I missing something? We have to figure this out because if I am rendering a final job for 30hrs I am unable to do any test renders to check my progress until the 30hr rendering job is complete. Thanks Gadzook

*.*.*.166 is you workstation?
If it is, you should still be able to render locally using maxwell.Exe in gui mode.

The nodes should only consume a node license, but it looks as if they take the full license for some reason.

You probably want to deal with that issue via customer gateway, might be faster.
