When I updated FiND@Home I received new work (huray!)
but also

    [*] The name of the project changed to 'Fight Neglected Diseases' (no big deal)
    [*] My team name was dropped in the BOINC manager (help!)


When I look at my account I am still listed as member of 'AMD Users'

As described here, there is limited synchronization between two servers. We do however synchronize team credits even though your BOINC manager does not show the team name.

Same here, read the other threads as directed.

This has not helped much as now after detaching and trying to attach it always fails with a server error.

Before detaching and re-attaching all downloads were failing so I aborted all downloads.

I will wait some days before trying again.

Not only has the Team Name disappeared when trying to reconnect but it appears that older BOINC Clients are now barred from being used.

I have tried to re-attach 3 hosts to this project

Two are using BOINC Clients 6.12.41. Yes it is old but it works for what I run.

One is running 7.4.25 and I was just able to not only re-attach but successfully download work without errors.

The 6.12.41 clients keep getting HTTP errors or that the project servers are down and I can't connect at all.

So what is the minimum BOINC Client now for this Project?

The problem with older BOINC clients may be our use of HTTPS for scheduler requests. Older BOINC clients did not have full set of certification authorities listed; if you do not want to upgrade, you could try transplanting a file "ca-bundle.crt" from a newer client to the old one and it may just fix the issue.

Oh, and our servers occasionally really are down :)

Thanks Rytis, for the information, I will have a play soon and see what happens.

Another problem I'm seeing is that I can't change the Resource Share and have it apply once my pc's are attached to the gridrepublic.org website. Under the Find@home website I have it set at 90% but want to change that now that you have units again, I want some but not quite so many, but when I change the percentage, save it and then update my pc it doesn't change. There is no setting for any of that, that I can find, on the gridrepublic website.

OK, project preferences should now be syncing. It will approximately an hour after the changes are made for them to sync up.
