trouble rendering out multiple frames over the render farm

I'm having trouble rendering out multiple frames over the render farm. My render settings is set to "name.#.ext" so that's not a problem. My scene frame range is -29 to 75. I didn't know if that was causing the problem. I typed "-29-75" in the frame range text field for the Submit Page for the farm and only get one frame returned. Any ideas?

Please make sure that you have also specified a range in the start frame and end frame range in your Render settings dialog. If you are still having problems with this, please come down to the systems office and we will take a look at it.

Here's the solution: In Maya 2009, make sure you uncheck the "Renumber Frames Using" option in Render Settings. It can overwrite frames with the same number if its not set correctly.

Unchecking this will fix the issue.
