GPU: all geometry renders flat blue or black

Hi all,

Having a bit of an issue with using arnold GPU (this is my first time testing it out, and I understand it is still in beta).

Currently when I render in the renderview for previewing purposes, all objects appear as a solid blue (example below).

Anyone know of the cause?

The same scene as soon as its switched to the CPU currently looks like this >

Extra info:

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080, CPU: i7-7700k

Yes, what does the Arnold log say?
Blue is the diagnostics color for NaN errors, so what shaders are being used there?

Can you describe/show what shaders etc are in the scene? What does the Log file say?
