VMWare Client Folding Errors
 
1 Attachment(s)
My CPUs wont fold now, i keep getting this error that is shown in Fahmon. Anyone have an idea how i can fix this? It keeps saying 4 cores are required or something even though the client is set to request work orders just for 2 cores at a time.

Did you change anything? Were they folding properly before?

I found the same error on client #6 this morning. I had to delete the VM and re-install it. Not your fault, looks like a bad WU.

It appears updating to the latest version of VMware has fixed my problem of those bad WUs (without having to have to delete the folder and reconfigure everything).

PDD seems lower then normal on cores and on gpu for some reason...
Thank you kindly John

Instead of making another thread... how does a person (such as myself) make it so the vmware player will get SMP WU's... instead of these crappy regular ones? I see you did it arinoth.. how? lol..

Can you show me the path to one of those two folding clients?

OK I was wondering if you were pointing to a regular smp client (not vmware but something else).

Access your vmware client by typing in : 192.168.2.16 in internet explorer.

Check the following that I have italicized:
Found 2 processors
User: chriskwarren
Team: 54196
Passkey:
Big Packets: big
Advmethods: yes

Check to make sure advmethods says yes, and that big packets are set to big.

Also,if you change the advmethods and big packets, remember that if you change this, you will still need to finish your downloaded core/work, before the new stuff is downloaded. You will not see anything change in FahMon for some time. You can let the work finish, or delete the folding folder and set it up again (there are other ways to reset it, but for simplicity sake right now this is what I suggest)

Thanks Chris, it's all set like that already.. i guess I'll just wait till this crappy WU finishes to see if I pickup an SMP WU. If not, I'm going to burn some things!!!!! :ph34r:

I dont know why my CPU and GPU pdd are lower then they should be. Typically if its one core its 3200 estimated PDD and with a 787 its normally somewhere in the 8k PPD. Has something magically gone on that's lowered my pdd from somehow moving from one location (home) to another (residence)
