I'm trying to get Job Manager running so that I can utilize the unused cores on my computer and other computers on our network.
Here's what I've done so far:
I am able to submit the job to Job Manager, but once there, it ultimately fails (error is "Unable to start Creo Elements/Pro on host"). It usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes. At first I thought it was the sequence itself, but even a simple drill sequence fails the same way.
Does anyone have experience getting Job Manager to work?
I'm running 5.0 build M080.
I have been using it very rarely for about 2 years. Not that great of a feature for my application. It sounds like you have done all the necessary steps. I can make a video of how it works for me later today.
ok I remember now. Stopping the nmsd.exe is not enough, after a full system restart and before you start proe dcad needs to be called. I put this in my startup folder and its smooth sailing.
Thanks to Nick for all of his help.
He pointed out that Job Manager needs a free license to run. I only have one license of ProNC, so Job Manager fails because it can't find a free one.
