How to set up Arnold for Houdini render farm ?

Hello everyone, when set up a render farm with Arnold using Houdini, do we need a Houdini engine license for every single render node? Or using a third party to run Htoa on each render node (Ex: Backburner when using Maya, 3ds Max)?

Please help me. Thank you!!!

You need an Arnold license for each render node.

You don't need a Maya or 3ds Max license.

If you use kick, you don't need anything except the Arnold license.

If you use Houdini, I think you need some kind of Houdini license. Check with Side Effects if you're not sure.
