first of all sorry for my poor english..

Want explain an funny thing that happen when, a lot of time ago, upgrade one of my host from boinc 5.2.8 to 7.0.64..

on date 28 Sep 2009 install boinc 5.2.8 over a machine called "pilgrim"
boinc say:
CPU type: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz
Number of processors: 2

..then on date 5 Apr 2013 i upgraded boinc to version 7.0.64 and boinc say:
CPU type: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz [Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9]
Number of processors: 2

..and now have two host with same name that cant merge.. ..
..the question is easy ..why happen this ?
..ok understand why cant merge by name.. different CPU ..but not true ..is boinc client that make them different !

..exist a way to merge ? ..or just patience?

My own experience has been that the "system name" is how Bonic appears to keep track of things. I might be wrong. And I vaguely remember being offered the ability to "merge" two different accounts that referred to the same machine (but the machine had a name change).

HTH,
Tom

Thx for the info Tom..

..what can i say?
I have just upgrade boinc client on the host called "pilgrim"
..same os, same name, same hw & same account..
..& now having two id.. 1st one "dead" with info from old boinc
and 2nd one "active" with the new client running. .

..having much more pc that give me this "trouble" but succed always to merge by name..
Maybe my wrong is upgrade from an too old version... if i have upgrade every time boinc ask me..
..maybe ..now this dont happen..

Just for talk about... this "trouble" happen if you install boinc on a vm managed by esxi
...having tested that making a vm that running boinc (work well) & then on same hw install same os (running on vm) with same name of course. . Make happen same trouble with cpu info

..However at end i cant do any for merge these two machines !?.... right !?

BOINC does NOT use your system name, but does use a unique identifier (this number is assigned by the connected project). If you look at my PCs you will they are numbered 7047761, 7085153 & 6452693; I can see their names, but you cannot.

It would be very helpful if your computers weren't hidden as there can be clues as to why two computer can't be merged.
