Hey Everyone,

The new server is in and I am working on getting our project set up and migrated over. My current plan is to take the current server offline early on Tuesday and migrate the database to the new server. I'm not sure how long this will take since the database is quite large. Hopefully I will have everything back up and running sometime on Wednesday the 20th. Sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Best,
Jake

hi Jake,
Great news with the new server. Please take your time to solve the problem once and for all. I think most of the users will understand and wait patiently.
Also, I'm not sure if you're aware of this issue
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=4399

If you can take a look at it and let us know some info on what to do then it'll be awesome. Majority of my teammates had pulled away from this project because of that issue. I, myself, had reduced over 50% of my resource also because of this issue.

Hope the transition to the new server goes well and everything come out great for you and the project.

Thank you kindly!

Jake-

I have heard that server release v1.0.4 is available now. Are you planning on updating to this version while switching over to the new server?

Hi Bill,

Yes, I am! We will be running the latest version of BOINC server. I am also updating to the newer version of the BOINC website so things will look a little bit different after the update too.

Thanks Jake for the response on the other thread! Good luck with the transition to the new server. I'm sure I'll be back full force after you're done :)

Cheers!

Hi VietOZ,

I hope so too! Believe me, this database stuff has been as frustrating to us here as it has been to you at home.

Best,

Jake

There are still 170k workunits outstanding (on people's computers getting crunched.) Sorry if it wasn't clear, but this was what I was trying to minimize.

Still 161k 8 hours later.

Cancel them and send out to only GPUs with a 1 day deadline. If they haven't completed yet they most likely won't before tomorrow.

Some will end up needing to go out again. Most of the ones I have left to be verified are on at least their 3rd task.
