One of my machines wouldn't render any Backburner jobs, a small extract from the Backburner Server log shows an unknown error:
INF Registration to 188.8.131.52 accepted
INF Receiving new job from 184.108.40.206
INF Adapter returned unexpected code -2 for "C:Program FilesAutodesk3ds Max 2014maxadapter.adp.exe" "-o" "ShutDown" "-l" "Info"

WRN Server has not received an update from the Manager and has timed out; assuming the manager is down.
The cause of this was the firewall, to verify if it is the case: temporarily switch the firewall off. The machine now renders the Backburner jobs without any problems.
