21) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Settings Transfer Bug (Message 439)
Posted 17 Jun 2004 by Profile Nikolay A. Saharov
When I activated my classic SETI@HomeI account in BOINC SETI@HomeII (in "Participate in SETI@home" web page of this project), my country was transferred as Russian Federation (as in classic S@H), but in BOINC S@H project in Country combobox there is only Russia.
I changed my country to Russia by hands.

All other settings was transferred well.

22) Questions and Answers : Preferences : General Preferences Bug? (Message 341)

Hi!

Who knows what this means?

Look at my log:

In my general preferences "Max CPUs" is "2", but in general Prefs for Home "Max CPUs" is "1".

As you can see, BOINC CC was started with using general Prefs for Home, where max CPUs=1 but after connection with SETI@Home's sheduler CC begun to use of default general Prefs with 2 max CPUs. It starts crunch a new WU.

What happened? Can you help me?
Thanks.

[Edit] In addition to above
-----
That was not first connection to SETI@Home sheduler server.
I saw a few times at that point.

I saw specially general preferences for 2 projects, BOINC Beta Test(ap) and BOINC SETI@Home(sah). (Project prefs are default for this two projects).

In both projects there are equal parameters between them, for default prefs and for home prefs (I haven't prefs for work and school).

Steps I do:
1. a) In default general prefs for BOINC BetaTest Project I change Max CPUs to 2, then save changes.
b) In home general prefs for BetaTest Proj I change Max CPUs to 1, then save changes.

2. In BOINC Core Client I click Update for BetaTest Proj.
CC communicates with BetaTest sheduler and updates general prefs.
(In log there are lines:
General prefs: from BOINC Beta Test (last modified 2004-06-13 03:13:46)
General prefs: using separate prefs for home)

3. Then in CC I click Update for SETI@Home Proj.
CC communicates with SETI@Home sheduler and updates general prefs.
(In log there are lines:
General prefs: from BOINC Beta Test (last modified 2004-06-13 03:13:46)
General prefs: using your defaults)

That's all!!! CC uses two CPUs instead of one. But i want use one CPU!!!
I cant understand why BOINC uses default general prefs although I set up Home general prefs, and that home prefs exists in both projects.

May be I'm incorrect somewhere?

Hmmm, I think there is problem in S@H project with different preferences.
In all cases CC downloads default general preferences.
