Message 21819 - Posted: 20 Jul 2018, 14:11:15 UTC

I started getting messages like this a couple of hours ago:

Fri 20 Jul 2018 06:59:47 AM MDT | Cosmology@Home | This project is using an old URL.  When convenient, remove the project, then add http://${URL_BASE}/


Then I started getting messages like this on downloads:

Fri 20 Jul 2018 07:46:24 AM MDT | Cosmology@Home | Temporarily failed download of vbox_job_309241180ccb46c4acf275d1bffada4a.xml: can't resolve hostname


I detached a machine and now I can't reattach it.

I suspect the project scheduler sent broken replies for a brief while, which messed up client state. It happened around 12:48 UTC, if I recall correctly.

A possible fix which worked for me was to shut down the client, correct all corrupted download URLs in client_state.xml using a text editor or a tool like sed, then start the client again.

From the same moment on, Gridcoin's points-per-hour took a turn.
Either Marius did something, or Gridcoin. I guess Marius.

The method of fixing the client_state.xml file mentioned in couple of post back did work for me.

On some of my other computers I detached and now it fails when I try to attached. Is there a way to get attached to work?

Sorry about that, that's exactly what happened for about 20 minutes.

If you were affected by this, another solution is just to abort your camb_boinc2docker tasks, abort the stalled transfers in the Transfers tab, then detach and reattach the project. Let me know if anyone has any remaining issues.
