For anyone who has not been following THIS THREAD, teams Knights Who Say Ni and Musketeers have joined forces with us to help TPR achieve the much coveted #1 spot in Docking! We tried before with the help of Serious Crunchers, but fell short of having the crunching power to overtake Planet 3DNow (although we did get top spot in RAC ).
We have another chance to gain that oh-so-elusive top position and the time has come to make the push! I’m calling on everyone who can contribute their CPUs to Docking. Let’s rally for TPR and for the science!
So, what say you TPR? Shall we give this one more shot?

Server2008 deployment needed Judge with Roaming Profiles? I seem to recall reading something about that on one of the boinc dev emails. I know in some cases to do such a thing you need to use an old installer, the ones that ran with data and exe in one place and as a service. I’ll hunt and play tomorrow

Doesn’t the current installer have that? That’s how I have my work system set up. Clicking the advanced button during setup allows you to specify where the exe and data are stored (I use custom locations), and you can install as a service… although they don’t call it that anymore. The service install creates a BOINC user account on the local system for managing the service permissions. The only problem I’ve had is the service log on default of specifying the BOINC user account will sometimes cause the service to fail to start. If I switch the service log on (second service tab) to use “local system account” then the problem goes away entirely.
If he has 100 machines, a install script with those customizations would come in handy. I don’t know if that’s doable or not.
Sorry if there are server issues. It might be the Knights trying to all connect at once and overloading the poor servers. Especailly if we forget to warn the people running the projects that they are in our sights. Several projects have requested that they be forewarned before we rig, I mean have democratic, elections.
PM sent, as admin of the seti team I can see the email used there for boinc
Install the new boinc, it’ll ask if you want to join a project when it starts, select Docking@Home, you’ll be creating a new account I think. Preferences can be set to run at specific timeframes in the boinc client.
