Message 40 - Posted: 3 Oct 2007, 14:42:32 UTC

My Linux box got the message that http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu is no longer the right URL, and that I should detach and re-attach to the correct URL. So I did. I tried various possibilities:

http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/

Each of these prompts for my login and password, but then attaching fails. It says something like "The web page at http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu contains no BOINC information.It may not be the URL of a BOINC project.Please check the URL and try again."

If you look at http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/get_project_config.php, you see that it contains a warning message. Maybe that's related?

I am attached to my Win 5.10.20 client but if I try to get some of these rare work units the following message occurs:

03.10.2007 20:57:11|Milkyway@home|Deferring communication for 1 days 0 hr 0 min 0 sec
03.10.2007 20:57:11|Milkyway@home|Reason: 6 consecutive failures fetching scheduler list


Hmmm.... ;-)

I get the same message! The scheduler does not want to give us work! ;)

This problem should now be fixed.

Perhaps not for all...

OK, but I should be able to download the scheduler list without needing to get work. It's not asking for work, it's trying to fetch the master URL file.

Once I got that, perhaps maybe then that my BOINC will try to ask for work. ;-)

In case you don't know what I am trying to do, I am not even asking for work.

So, starting with a clean slate.
Detached, reattached. And these are the messages I get.

BOINC isn't asking for work. It can't ask for work if it doesn't know where the schedulers live. I can't get BOINC to download Milkyway's scheduler list. Easy. :-)

This is Windows 2000 SP4 and I am currently using World Community Grid's BOINC 5.10.22, as a service.

I'm in the same boat as Jord.

I tried with both of my hosts.

First one is Fedora 7/BOINC 5.10.21/Installed as a daemon.
Second one is XP Pro SP2/BOINC 5.10.21/Single User install.

Log from Linux Host:

Perhaps this will provide clues to track down the problem:

I have had two machines attached for several weeks now, one windows and one linux. In fact the linux machine even downloaded, crunched, and returned two results.

Yesterday, I attached several more machines.

However, when I go into my account page, and display computers, only the original two show. As far as the project server can see, I have only the original two attached. But when I look at the client on the new machines, they show attached.

All machines, new and old, are now getting the "failure fetching scheduler list".

Message 65 - Posted: 4 Oct 2007, 0:14:28 UTC - in response to Message 64.

I don't see your ID number anywhere in the logs either... have you tried detaching and reattaching?

Yes, I tried detaching/reattaching prior to this post.

Now I checked my computers and saw that up till 4pm this afternoon, I did have hostID 629 attached. What happened to it is anyone's guess. I haven't seen it be attached at any time.

I sent you an email with the log of how I reattached to BOINC alpha. It shows some differences to my log in post 62.
