CPU only render failure

My render keeps failing on CPU which is annoying as this works just fine when I switch the device over to GPU. On CPU my render fails and gets cranky about a file name. Has anyone had this/or can shed light on it?

Could not read resolved image file, it says, so my guess, D:/clientname/geo/Bathroom_Sink/Maps/roundsSink_02_v1/roundSink_v2002_Porcelin_Roughness.1013.exr is not present. Maybe there is some "leftover" stuff that ended up by accident in tile 1013, because 13 udim tiles for a porcelin round sink sounds like overkill. I would check the uv's of that geo.

Thanks @rudi.nieuwenhuis! I solved the problem and it had nothing to do with UVs. The camera is going prettty close on an 8k+ render so unfortunately I do require that much resolution. 

my question was why everything was working fine on a GPU render and then aborts because of this issue on CPU setting? It’s a real head scratcher.

 

the underlying cause is a dodgy exr from substance painter - I solved this by importing and then exporting from Mari which does a much better job with writing data it seems. Dodgy Adobe development I guess.
