So I've got two machines setup on Backburner and it looks like it works quite well. I am hoping the emailing function works as that would really give me peace of mind.
Note to self.
Backburner Manager - Manages All Rendernodes
Backburner Monitor - Allows us to view all available Rendernodes and manages jobs
Backburner Server - Considered a render node
Start Backburner Manager, then Server then Monitor on main machine and Backburner Server on all other machines.
Testing being done on Maya 2010 and Backburner with Windows 7
