6/4/2007 6:49:54 AM|lhcathome|When convenient, detach this project, then reattach to http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/
I cant "Detach". project has "detach" greyed out.
I've attached to project again (creating a duplicate) and that 2nd copy allows me to detach. but 1st will not. Any Suggestions?

Or he uses BAM. Whatever your Account Manager is, you need to detach there.

Actually, BAM took care of this automatically. I would think Grid Republic would too, eventually. BAM changed the URL on their end, and then automatically detached and reattached all clients.

I am using the Boinc Manager (BAM), the button to "Detach" is greyed out. I have tried to attach and created a 2nd copy of LHC. I can (and have) "Detach"ed from the 2nd one... Problem is I can not "detach" from the original one because button is Greyed out. There are 5 commands in the Projects tab: 1. Update 2. Resume 3. No new tasks. 4 Reset and 5. Detach (which is greyed out

any other suggestions?

You might try to log in to your Bam account at http://www.boincstats.com/and detach from there. If you are using an account manager like Bam you need to use it to detach not the Boinc manager.

Any projects "attached" by an Account Manager should be detached by going to the AMS's website. If you're detaching in client, AMS will just re-attach you next time you connects to AMS. For this reason, detach is greyed-out in the client for these projects.

Anyway, it's still possible to manually delete the account_*.xml-file for a project and re-start BOINC-client.

I tried detaching both via BOINCView and BAM. Even after running the BAM Account Manager in update mode on the local client, the Project did not detach.

I ended up logging onto the local computer, detaching BAM, detaching the Project, reattaching the Project and then reattaching BAM.

Thanks to all who tried to help in the "can't Detach" problem.
I tried them all to the best i could.
The suggestion to manually delete the "account_*.xml" worked.

I did a search for "account_*.xml" on my C: drive. and found multiple hits. realized it was the account_LHC entry in the C:\\Program Files\\Boinc entry that needed to be deleted. I deleted it.
Restarted Boinc Manager. LHC no longer there...
Attached to Projects in the Tools option...and attached to Lhcathome...
ALL is now OK.
lhcathome now has the Command "Detach" highlighted.

Looks like probably all the same computer. He's a victim of the duplicating hosts bug. Notice how most of them have 0 (or very few) credits?
