Default maya2010 - backburner + AO maps

ahoi folks!

I am just about setting up a render network with the backburner. 4 years ago I used to bake large ambOcc maps on a renderfarm with backburner out of 3dsmax. now since autodesk finally implemented the "create backburner job.." within maya 2010 I was a little too enthusiastic in the beginning. it seems like maya´s latest version is only able to render but not bake over a renderfarm. maybe I got something wrong but I read the manual multiple times and cant find anything pointing in a useful direction.

does anyone have any ideas how to bake maps / assign these jobs over the network? (I specifically need to bake ambient occlusion maps a lot while modeling) would be great to dispatch it from my local machine with a few clicks...

everything starts and ends in the right place at the right time.

As far as I know, Maya does not support slicing or other distributive rendering features besides distributive batch rendering.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
