Thanks for setting me straight Dave. *LOL* At least it keeps things interesting.

Yea my tasks are trickling & otherwise seem to be working correctly but since sometime after the new year(1st or 2nd) haven't been receiving credit after trickles.

Like this one for example http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=17653243
And this one that was completed on the 2nd & is awaiting it's final trickle. http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=17591001
And a few others just the same. I've only started doing some work here again after a long period crunching elsewhere so i'm wondering is this considered normal? Or is something indeed wrong?

Hi Richard that explains the external sites but I seem to be having problems getting any credit at all from my account page or boinc manager either, for at least the last 3 or 4 days. (Only with CPDN)

Is anyone else having the same problem or just me? Or am I missing something?

TIA

Has anyone else been able to attach since the the front page went offline? If so how?

Attaching isn't a problem, you can use http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/ to attach since they've also including the link to scheduler on this page. While the BOINC-client will complain about using this address it will still work without any problems. I've for many years been attached to the "wrong" url for a project without having any problems appart for getting the "wrong address" on scheduler-requests.

For anyone already attached but is stuck with needing to re-download master-page, a work-around is to edit the account_climateprediction.net.xml-file in the BOINC data-directory to use http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/ as the master-url (the 2nd. line in the file) and afterwards re-start the BOINC client.

Then the homepage is finally back, it is just to re-edit the account-file to use http://climateprediction.net/ as master_url. This can be done even if you attached to the "wrong" url originally.


BTW, while attaching isn't difficult to do, I immediately hit the Linux-bug of "missing libstdc++.so.6", a library so ancient it's not part of the repositories any longer meaning I've not got the foggiest idea how to install it.



Thanks for your input Ingleside. As I mentioned in my post I was attached using the URL you mentioned but after boinc started complaining that I detach & then re-attach using the regular URL I decided it wasn't worth the risk of losing countless hours of work & detached.

If the front page doesn't come back up in the next day or so i'll re-attach using http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/ as the URL, now that I know it's safe to do so. Thanks for the tip.

Not to worry, i'll just keep checking for an announcement or until I see the front page is back up again. Thanks again for the help.

OK Les thanks anyway.

Has anyone else been able to attach since the the front page went offline? If so how?

PS When at first I couldn't attach I tried a few things out and one seemed to work.
Instead of using "climateprediction.net" I used "http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/" instead which seemed to work OK & attached & downloaded both apps & work, the only problem was boinc started to complain that i'd attached using the wrong URL and when convenient to detach & re-attach to the usual "climateprediction.net".
Which I did as I didn't want to take the risk of crunching days of work for nothing. But now i'm wondering what would have happened? Would the work have trickled & uploaded properly? Or not? I mean if the only problem was boinc telling me to re-attach then fine i'd do that after the front page came back up.

I'm not suggesting anyone to do this, just wondering what would have happened for my own curiosity?

Any thoughts?

Hi thanks for the reply Les,
The post that you pointed to referred to the file account_climateprediction.net.xml. Which I took that to mean that I could just copy that file from one of my other working hosts and use it to attach with on the new host. Is that correct?

After stopping boinc then copying that file from another attached host & then restarting boinc it did indeed try to attach but has so far failed to do so. Boinc is now stuck in a constant cycle of boinc trying to fetch "Fetching scheduler list" & then boinc saying..
Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Since project communications are working on my other rigs it seems i'm still in need of help.

Thanks again

Is there a way to attach a new host while the front page is down? since the the font page URL is the same as the attach URL.

I have an account already i'm just trying to attach one more host.

I tried this method mentioned elsewhere in this forum with no success...
Using a command prompt I navigated to C:\\Program Files\Boinc\ then entered the command BOINCCMD --attach_project http://climateprediction.net ######MY full account key#######

Nothing happened. I tried the above while boinc was active & while closed. Same result.

Did I miss anything? Or has any else have another idea?

TIA

Thanks for your time guy's.

@ Ray Murray: I also have 16GB on each of those machines reporting error's so "out of memory" is probably not the problem for me either.

I'm glad at least 1 WU seems to be still alive & kicking.

Oh well try try again. Please keep us informed of any progress.

@ Les Bayliss: Have just before upgraded to 7.0.62. Thanks.

All the best JN

Hi, I finally seem to to past the download errors from past weeks but except for one WU that's still crunching all others in the last 2 days have failed. This is one heck of a lot of time crunching for nothing..
Any idea what's causing all these errors?

http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15728575
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15728505
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15728222
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15727928
and this that had to be aborted.
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15728098

Could someone tell me if this final task seems to be running correctly I have my doubts?
http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=15727960

Cheers, thanks for looking..
