Hi there i'm getting troubles running multiple vm instances on gcp, one at time work fine but when i have 2 or more instances running on master blender i see only one row synced switching machine name every few seconds, all ports are opened on my router and on gcp firewall, another thing is that every instance (nodes) can see my iMac (master) but cannot see themselves in the list.
If i add manually the machine, the row still grey, and the new ip i wrote in the field is assigned on the active working row.
I'm using blender 2.92.0 with cr 0.3.0.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks in adance.
sorry but is copyright protected, i ask my customer after the animation is published if i can post some frame here
Hi Valdo, thanks so much for persisting and sorry I didn't get to you before hand :) Great news that you have this working! Would you be able to share what you are rendering? Would love to see!
Ok!! i have the solution!
Because my multiple vm instances are copy of the same image machine, auto rename hostname of gcp is not enough, cr plugin use machine-id to distinct nodes, i had to rename machine-id under linux editing /etc/machine-id for every copy of vm istances.
Now i have my super cheaper preentible renderfarm with 480 cpu xeon cores!!
I hope this help someone in future
update: i try to connect all machines (server and vm instances) without logging in cr account adding every client manually.
First connect good, second stay grey and when i click on connect i see first node already connected showing activities on sync ending with 'failed to connect'.
