Command line Bifrost doesn't render

I'm trying to use our Linux Maya/Arnold command line render, and when I try and render a Bifrost scene, I get the following error.  The scene does actually render, but no water.  Any thoughts? I can see that Bifrost is installed at /usr/autodesk/bifrost/maya2020/2.1.0.0/, but apparently it's not loading.

 

Starting "/usr/autodesk/maya2020/bin/maya"

I had an issue with win. was not rendering bifrost at all. Just reinstalled Mtoa 4.1.1 now it works.

I’ve requested the 2020 update 4 install, so I will try again once that’s done, but it’s centrally managed so I have little control over the Linux systems. I’m just not sure it ever worked, as we haven’t used Bifrost before. Just curious if we were missing something.

The update seemed to fix it.  All good now.
