Message 134622 - Posted: 6 Nov 2019 | 18:09:53 UTC

The machine where I am posting this recently crashed. When I rebooted it I found I could not log back into the website. So I changed the password. Then I found machines using the weak account key will not connect to the server. It is advising me to dettach and reattach. I believe this will lose the work. Is there anyway I can save the work currently in flow?

1) You are correct -- DO NOT DETACH. That will lose the tasks.

2) Your weak account key is based on your password. Change the password, and the weak account key changes too. This is a feature -- it allows you to invalidate weak keys you've given to other people.

3) If you attached your computers to PrimeGrid using a weak key, simply change the weak key and restart BOINC. I think that should work. If it doesn't, we'll try harder to figure this out, but definitely do not detach or you will lose the tasks.

If I just try attaching I get an error of "Operation failed: already attached to project".

Shutdown client and manually edit key ("authenticator") inside "account_www.primegrid.com.xml" file (located in Boinc data directory, default is \ProgramData\Boinc on Windows).
