I can't get SMP work, either.

Well I guess we do science faster than they can keep up or something! In any case its too bad there issues here. My computer is unusually quiet and it bugs me that once again 95% of its processing power is going unused... Hope to see these AS/WS issues fixed soon.

Bruce - I don't think the log has the specific server addresses in it - see below for an example;


If you read the sticky at the top of this forum titled Troubleshooting Server Connectivity Issues (Do This First) you would have seen this.

Whenever there is a communication error, an IP address will be mentioned in the FAHlog. However, not all IP addresses are mentioned by default in the FAHlog:
IP address of AS -> By default
IP address of WS -> Will only be specified if the -verbosity 9 flag is being used.
IP address of CS -> Will only be specified if the -verbosity 9 flag is being used.

My previously down client just got a P6062. Somebody applied the magic. Hopefully, this one is now resolved. :)

Thanks for the reports. We're on it. It should hopefully be resolved now. A system went down and the redundant backup didn't have all of the SMP servers on it. We're also fixing the redundant server to avoid this issue in the future.

EDIT - Just as I posted this I re-booted one system and it picked up a unit - all are now running again.



I've been having same problem for nearly 8 hours now so have turned off systems as they finish which also kills off the gpu folding. Now got 3 systems off with another 1 later tonight. Logs don't give details of server only that "No appropriate work server was available" - see brief extract below
