I think Papa Blurf's tagged, locked, & pinned message at top applies to what you're seeing.

If I have 40 wu's in "Ready to start" status on one computer, but my 'other' computer can't get any (due to the problem mentioned in another thread).


Can I move the files from one computer to the other?

I don't think so - I believe SETI knows which computer it sent it to, and won't accept the result from another computer (Ain't that right, guys?). If you moved the results back to the original computer, though, I don't know what would happen when you did an update there....

You cannot report or upload the task from any BOINC installation other than the one it was sent to. (You can move the ENTIRE installation to a new computer though). It may be possible to move the task from one computer, crunch it, and move it back, but each move requires major surgery on a critical state file (get it wrong and ALL of the work on that computer may be lost).

I did some playing around with this & found a few things:

1) You can't move 1 tasks. It's all or nothing.

2) You can have a machine download tasks & then move everything to another machine for processing.

3) When the tasks are complete move everything back to the original system that downloaded the tasks.

4) If you have 1 machine downloads tasks for 2(or more) computers, process the tasks, & then upload them on the machine that downloaded them. Then you will get multiple computer entries for the same machine that can not be combined. As there were tasks being processed at the same time. (this is to keep people from cheating the computer stats)

5) If you simply move everything to another computer & have it take over where the old one was. (I did this as I was retiring a machine) The results will be reported as a new computer that will get the credit instead of the old one.

As far as getting science done there is no problem. Just a bit of a mess on your list of computers if you do this with several machines.
