I was not aware that it would be helpful. Here:

See under CPU Type. That is the reason website refuses to combine them.

Yes, I tried to make Domain names identical. Does not help.

We need website functionality that allows manually and forcibly merge computers. In my case BOINC client did not identify CPU correctly at first and now I have two records of the same computer that I cannot merge. When I try to do so website claims that these records represent "different" computers while I know for the fact they refer to the same one.

I have this problem with Tasks page:

When I switch to it from Your account page, it shows everything fine. But when I click any filter type link like "In Progress" or "Valid" or "Error", etc, I get an empty page and message "Already logged in".
4) Message boards : Number crunching : BOINC for Android and R@H web-site computing preferences (Message 95636)
Posted 30 Apr 2020 by Eternum
In my computing preferences I set both "Store at least ... days of work" and "Store up to an additional ... days of work" to 0.

All my computers seem to follow this settings and download a new task only after the current one is finished. The only exception is my phone. I allocated 2 cores for BOINC, yet my phone routinely has 2 running WUs plus 3-4 in the pipeline.

Does BOINC for Android use/follow R@H computing preferences? If not, how can I limit Android version of BOINC to only actively running tasks and force it to not download any extra WUs?

Thank you.

What worked for me is that I copied from some other machine to c: ProgramData BOINC projects boinc.bakerlab.org_rosetta. After that download task for cleared up by itself and WU started to work.

Is some sort of generic info database for all Rosetta Mini projects?

If I see failures again, I will try to play with installed anti-virus software.

This probably has been reported, but just in case. Almost all Rosetta Mini v3.78 units fail to download:

4/10/2020 3:50:28 AM | Rosetta@home | Started download of
4/10/2020 3:50:30 AM | | Project communication failed: attempting access to reference site
4/10/2020 3:50:30 AM | Rosetta@home | Temporarily failed download of transient HTTP error
4/10/2020 3:50:30 AM | Rosetta@home | Backing off 03:44:38 on download of
4/10/2020 3:50:32 AM | | Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

It seems to go circles for days until I click Abort Transfer button.

Every time download fails I see the same error regarding file. All other files from Rosetta Mini WU seem to go through download process just fine.

Rosetta v4.12, on the other hand, works without a single issue. So do all WCG projects.
