Boinc instance 3 found in C:\ProgramData\BOINC3
"C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe" /m /n 127.0.0.1 /g 31420 /p 21498169a53a39a9d8f5b19458fbde07
Note that I add +2 to the port # from the instance before.
It can be any port number, as long as it is not an allocated port number.Main Boinc should be 31416
Boinc 1 should be 31417
Boinc 2 : 31418
Boinc 3 : 31419
As Icecold mentioned, this takes either 0 or 1.<allow_multiple_clients>3</allow_multiple_clients>
agreed! But multi-instances also produce the same as a single instance. Why not have multi?Also, not to kill the fever, but multiple instances only do any good in bunkering situations. For normal running the one instance is fine, even if you have 128 CPU's !
The password for remote control of the client is separate from the passwords of the projects you connect with.I have a different gui_rpc_auth.cfg of for instance 4... It is "4498a71916aa2e76b6eaec7902429dff".
I have at this point over 2 days tried so many combinations that I may have created a new password, but not with WCG itself. I still use the same password for all instance connecting to the WCG.
Uh oh. Perhaps more than one client was started using the same data directory. Check with taskmanager, with added 'command line' column.I am now getting a status from several tasks under the tasks tab of "Postponed: Waiting to acquire slot directory lock. Another instance my be running".
You can see the server's view of your client instances at My Contribution: Results Status. It's awkward to use though, among else because all client instances on the same computer most likely have the same computer name.I will try more tomorrow, but I think so far I cannot connect back to around 4 days worth of work on this puter. I may have been overriding old competed tasks, or they may be sitting there finished and I just cannot connect to upload.
For Linux, I have a startup script which makes a good attempt to avoid this situation:Perhaps more than one client was started using the same data directory.
In the last 38 minutes since you posted that Free-DC must have updated. I was checking stats on another project and noticed WCG has stats on there now.
