Because of an upgrade to the WMAgent server, we need to drain the CMS job queue. So, I'm not submitting any more batches at present and we should start running out over the weekend. If you see that you are not getting any CMS jobs (not tasks...) please set No New Jobs or stop BOINC.
I expect that the intervention will take place Monday morning, and hopefully we'll have new jobs again later that day.

Does the upgrade require any client-side changes, e.g. new ports to be opened on the firewall ...?

I wouldn't think so: "We've got a new WMAgent production release which we started pushing to production this week. Can we arrange a window to get this agent - vocms0159 - upgraded as well?"

I don't have a bright look in Ivan's kitchen, but my guess is that the well with CMS-jobs is almost dry.

When you have CMS Simulation selected in your project preferences, deselect it until further notice to prevent idling of your CMS Virtual Machine(s) and select another sub-project.
Theory Simulation normally always has something to do.

Your current running CMS VM should be shutdown gracefully by the wrapper, when no new CMS-job is received.
When you have a fresh CMS-VM and don't get a job, the task will end after ~10 minutes into an error, reducing your daily quota.
By returning error-tasks you will absorb the max # of tasks for your host quickly and this quota will increase by 1 at midnight (CET) and after returning valid tasks.

After a few problems restarting, we now have a queue of CMS jobs for you to drink from, so anyone wanting jobs can now resume requesting tasks.
