Anyone know when this upload problem will be resolved. If the servers are online then it seems like DNS can't resolve the IP addr for the upload server. My same machines are not having an issue with E@H.

I had been running Rosetta for month without issue on a Linux box but was forced to complete the work on that box and add Rosetta to the current box which is WIN7.

Not sure what is going on here.

Any ideas anyone.

[EDIT]
After resetting the project I have seen at least two more entries so I am not sure that a reset has accomplished anything.




The "exited with zero status but no 'finished' file" occurs when some other task on your computer prevents the science app from communicating with BOINC. It is usually safe to ignore it as it will have to happen 100 times to a task before the task will give up and error out. On the BOINC forum Jord (Ageless)makes the following suggestions:

Possible causes of the "Task exited with zero status but no 'finished' file" syndrome:

1. Make sure you exclude the BOINC directory and all subdirectories (or the BOINC Data directory and all subdirectories in BOINC 6 and 7) from being actively scanned by anti-virus and anti-spyware software. Only scan when you have exited BOINC.

2. Don't defrag your disk with BOINC on.

3. Don't run Scandisk with BOINC on.

4. Disable Drive Indexing.

5. Update your motherboard chipset drivers, specifically those for your IDE or SATA controllers.

6. Disable the Time synchronization in Windows XP/Vista. normally found under the clock (double click it in the system tray), third tab (Internet in English), uncheck the sync option.

7. When you use use BOINC's CPU throttling function, you can run into the too many exit(0)s error. The advice here is to disable the BOINC throttling (set it to 100%) and reduce the amount of CPUs/cores for BOINC to use.
** Use at most 100.0 percent of CPU time.
* In BOINC 7.0, this is done through the option On multiprocessors, use at most xxx% of the processors.


Thanks for the reply.

I have disabled the two BOINC directories from virus scanning and disabled drive indexing and changed throttling to 100%. I will look into the mother board chipset drivers as suggested.
