Thanks Bogmali! It looks like all is well now.
Really not what we need when we're on the edge of what could be an epic day
My GPU3 clients all came back to life with 611 WUs.
Is anyone getting the 9xx WUs?
Nope. All 611's here.:shadedshu
That sucks. Better than no WUs at least
Have some 925's in the mix along with the 611's.
If your stuck with the 611's(like I was on 2 clients):
Let the current work unit finish and confirm it downloads another 611, then stop the client
Change machine ID with -configonly flag
Delete Work folder and Queue.dat folder
Re-start client and watch a 912 or 925 pop up
Hope this helps. It worked like a charm for me on 2 clients that had 611's repeatedly while I noticed the 3rd client picked up 925's all night long.
Mine picked them up without I had to change anything (have -forcegpu nvidia_fermi -advmethods as per advise from Buck)
I went to bed last night plagued with 611 WUs so when I saw this post I decided it was time to try something new.
When I looked to see what fermi would be finishing next I noticed that I was now running all 912 or 925 WUs.
Yesterday during the down time I switched to the new GPU3 client and removed the fermi flag. When we started getting WUs all I got was the 611 so I added the fermi flag again.
I don't know if I should trust my chances and remove the flag.
Tried it to the T and it didnt work Its a lesser impact for me so I wont trash the 611 it just picked up. Suppose I will just keep on taking the 611s until the work server decides otherwise
I replaced the folding@home .exe file with the 6.40r1 version and never got any 611 WU's (except yesterday's).
Still no luck! Replaced the EXE and followed the steps Buck outlined. I guess I am unlucky?
Did you try with just -advmethods? You better get your act together, I don't want to overtake a man with engine problems
Thanks Bogi, running 6.40 on all my GPU3 clients now and it seems to be working with -advmethods flag.
I'm preparing for more Fermi cards to arrive this month, so I started moving my 3 Fermi cards to a spare MSI K9A2 Platinum, but could not get it to post, so I had to put everything back. I prob lost a couple of hours folding on a few rigs. I will have a 75K -bigadv dumping in an hour and a 63K dumping tomorrow. Hopefully we can stay ahead of the Canucks and close a little ground on them. Absolutely great job in the last 30 days guys!
All better now
Best Month 32,499,006 10-10 from Folding@Home. Yes some month and we still have some updates left. I will join you in the -bigadv dumping but not until tomorrow (about 92k + 77k).
Just picked up a P2686 bigadv. I wish it was as smooth as this every WU exchange. Crossing my fingers for tomorrow am as well.
Good luck on that bigadv BUCK.
On another note, I just passed 1.2 million. I'll be having a GTS240 online shortly courtsey of TexBill.
how many ppd would a 6850 get me stock? (i would be overclocking it but just want a base score)
Did I miss something????
Now i know those rigs were folding during that window of time, and are still folding now, no resets, no power loss, no internet loss. Anyone able to enlighten me as to what universe those WUs got returned to?
I think that time last night the servers handing out GPU3 WUs was down. Everyone's points were down for that time (basically the last update).
Mine shows no GPU3 WUs returned, only the 783s from my GTS 250 running GPU2:
shame on them for limiting our production
Thanks though at least I don't need to search out the reason here
We were lucky that Stanford was able to fix the issue so quickly on a Saturday Night.
