How can I change my cross project ID so that all of my projects will be lumped under 1 ID?

Thanks

Fisrt, the projects need a common path between them. Simple if they\'re all on one computer.
Then you just relax and wait for a few days to a week.
As each project is contacted, the cpids get changed, until they all end up the same.

If they are spred over several computers, it gets complicated.
e.g.
computer 1 has project A
computer 2 has project B
computer 3 has project C
computer 4 has project A & B
computer 5 has project B & C

(I think this should do it.) :)
An other way is for all of them to have project A, (e.g. SETI), plus one other.

I am running seti, rosetta, predictor, climate prediction, and the special BBC climate prediction... over 4 computers. Seti, rosetta and predictor all have the same cpid and the 2 from climate prediction have a different cpid. This is where the confusion is..... Would I have to resetup my account????

Thanks

No. relax, and wait.
And re-read what I said. I\'m sure that you haven\'t understood how it works.
Perhaps post with what projects are on each computer.

Are the email addresses exactly the same in all of the projects? Including case? Have you double checked? There was a recent change where the server would automatically change email addresses to lower case for new projects. Advice is to use lower case.

Things that must happen in order for the CPIDs to line up.

1) The email addresses must be the same.
2) There must be a path from project server to host to project server that covers all projects.
3) Join date bug:
If you join Project A and attach to host 1, and then join Project B and attach to host 2, and then join Project C and attach to hosts 1 and 2, the CPIDS will never line up. In this case, you will have to temporarily attach Project A to host 2 (at least until the CPIDs line up).
4) The hosts must attach to each of the projects at least twice.
5) The projects must publish the stats.xml files.
6) The stats site(s) must pick up the stats.xml files.

For the adventurous, it is possible to modify all of the xml files on a host to change the internal CPIDS (still won\'t help if the email addresses are different).
