Account manager error: file not found
Posted 14 Mar 2008 by lostcub
I noticed that SETI@home stopped working, so I looked at the tasks. I had two task completed, but had computer error listed.
Messages said something like "invalid key, please contact site, there was also a note that said, if convenient reset project.
I first tried to connect to the account manager at http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ and it connected and asked for me email and password. BOINC returned an error and said "check messages" which basically said, file not found.
At this point I felt the two units completed have probably already been lost anyhow do to some form of error so, I detached and tried to re attach to SETI@home; same error was returned.
I then checked server status, and there seems to be no problems with any of the servers and all were working normally. So, I decided to re install BOINC thinking somehow it could have been a file that somehow got deleted. After re installing, I started the software. Messages indicated it connected to another project that was still attached in the previous installation (but, currently I'm not taking any work units for it.) I tried again to attach to SETI@home and got the same error messages. Here are all the messages from the time I started BOINC after I reinstalled it:

I would appreciate any help in solving this issue, I have never ran a crossed this error before and like I said, I did reinstall BOINC which is often the best thing to do if "files" are missing.
I can logged manually into the seti@home site, (doubt if I could post here if I couldn't <grin>) but, it seems BOINC can't for some reason. Oh yes, I even reseted my password too at the site to see if it got corrupted on the server.

(SIGH)...At least I know NOW I didn't do something wrong... LOL
Thank goodness it's not just me! The whole site seemed to be down for the best part of half an hour just now so I suspect the problems are in California.
