It would be nice if I could actually download the executables. ;-)

This seems to be a common problem on our download mirrors, neither with the apps nor the main server.


Thanks for the quick reply - I guess I'll just let it keep trying. It does succeed occasionally, so I guess it'll get there eventually. Hopefully the servers won't explode before that happens ;)

It looks like the project

It looks like the project team is getting a handle on the situation slowly.

Status is showing the Caltech mirror is back online now.

Unfortunately, when there are

Unfortunately, when there are problems with the upload and/or download servers, project resets and/or detach reattach operations are the last things you want to do (read that as NEVER do that).

The reason is they both cause the CC to dump all project related files, which then have to be reacquired from the project servers and mirrors.

The only thing you can do now is wait it out and let things run their course.

It does seem wu are labelled as S5R7 to answer DanNeely's question at the beginning of this message thread.

By the way, just an aesthetic

By the way, just an aesthetic concern, but it does look a bit weird that it's downloading all these S5R4 files along with the S5R7 files. I imagine they just don't need updating, but since we have to redownload them all anyway, why not rename them on the server?

Let's see. How was it

Let's see. How was it possible again to temporarily tell BOINC to use another mirror?

I know, we shouldn't do that. That'll only hammer another server.
So far, luckily, no download errors yet. I'll leave BOINC try on its own, I think. Better than most probably breaking it. :P

IIRC, you have to hack the scheduler reply and/or client_state to do it immediately. I thought the CC would auto-hop through the list of mirrors on its own after a certain number of failed attempts.

In any event as you pointed out, probably more trouble there than it's worth! ;-)

You should find the list of download sites in your client_state.xml. You could stop the client, manipulate them, and start it again. Or set your machine to a different timezone and update the project.

But as you pointed out already this wouldn't help much in the given situation.

Well, I managed to get all the files and am crunching away. Let's hope that will soon be true for the majority of users ;)
