I have a Mac Pro and a Windows computer. They are on the same internal network (my home network). The local IP address of this Windows computer is 10.0.0.9 and its name is blender (I use this computer to run blender jobs). When I run
ipconfig on this Windows computer it is confirmed that the local IP address of this computer is 10.0.1.9
I use this Blender computer only for running Blender jobs. Therefore the Deadline application is used. I have a Deadline slave on the Mac Pro and a Deadline slave on the Blender machine. The Deadline repository and database is on the Blender machine. This used to be Deadline 8 and everything worked just fine. Recently I installed a lot of software updates and also updated to Deadline 10.
And now suddenly I have this problem that the Deadline Monitor on my Mac Pro cannot access the Deadline database on the Blender machine.
An error occurred while trying to connect to the Database (Blender:27100,10.0.1.9:27100). It is possible that the Mongo Database server is incorrectly configured, currently offline, blocked by a firewall, or experiencing network issues.
Also when I try to ping this blender machine (10.0.1.9) using the command
ping blender the terminal response is
ping: cannot resolve blender: Unknown host and also
ping 10.0.1.9 does not work.
The C: drive of this Windows computer is shared with my Mac Pro. On my Mac Pro the blender machine is in the "Shared" list and I can see all the folders and the files of the Windows C: drive on my Mac computer.
As you can see the Blender machine is shared to the Mac Pro and on the Mac Pro I can see and access the Deadline folders. This is important because I use this Blender computer only for running Blender jobs.
Somehow the sharing between the Windows machine and the Mac is not working, but I don't know why.
I did run
brew install mongodb (I hope I installed everything correctly) and I got this when run mongo
By the way, when I submit a Blender on my Blender machine Deadline executes the job without a problem and also the Monitor has no problems. So it seems that somehow I have a connection problem between my Mac and Windows machine (and it used to work fine).
I hope this helps. I am not a very technical person and I hope you can give me some detailed instructions on how to solve this problem or how to analyse this problem.
Trying to follow up with this mongodb I did run mongo 10.0.19:27100
I also have set the firewall OFF and then had another run
