Tile missing in batch render frame?

I keep getting this error on deadline render and I wonder what might be the cause.

When I trying to load the complete frame in Nuke, I got this error msg: Error reading pixel data from image file "(file path here)". Tile(0,15,0,0) is missing.

The farm writes out the image and marked as completed. But as I check the file size it seems smaller, so it does look like the render is incomplete.

Also the error is inconsistent throughout the sequence.

Thanks in advance.

That means that the file is incomplete. Arnold writes out tiles as they are finished, so it's possible the render was interrupted, and a partial output was written to disk (hence the render marked as complete).

Was there an error writing out image (renderer? network? file system?)
or error copying image from fiel server?

Hi Stephen, thank you for your response. Yeah it is an unfinished render due to a corrupted texture. I was able to located it by going thru the log.

Thanks again!
