    Looks like there is a problem with bigadv server 128.143.231.201. I have just lost a juicy fat 8102 with the error "server does not like work unit, dumping" :wallbash: Kasson is working on the problem, thought I would let you guys know incase you get the same annoying error.

    edit - two more 8101s down the toilet and I was going for world domination too - my evil plans in tatters.

    Seems OK this morning, uploaded a 8101 at 0600HRS.

    No it didn't :wallbash: - server reports problem.

    Same server!

    Hi Ben

    I lost an 8101 this weekend, I thought it was a problem at my end. I just checked and it was the same server you had problems with. I have just successfully uploaded a 6901 but that went to a different server.

    It looks like the problem relates to bad work units that were asigned on the 28/29 of oct. The system should be ok now but it hasnt been confirmed and Pande group have been less than helpful locking the relevant thread on the forum and not confirming if the issue is fixed or what it actualy is !

    I am giving bigadv another go to see if it is ok now, very unhappy with Kasson and the Pande group as their attitude towards donors is poor on this occasion. They need to get their systems in order and have some appreciation of the time and money used by donors instead of viewing them as pests.

    just looked in the terminal the P8102 got to 24% and then this came up......

    Program Gromacs, VERSION 4.5.3
    Source code file: /vspm58/VM/fah-converted/mnt/fah_windows_build/LinuxBuilds/gromacs-4.5.3/src/mdlib/pme.c, line: 534

    Fatal error:
    1 particles communicated to PME node 10 are more than 2/3 times the cut-off out of the domain decomposition cell of their charge group in dimension x.
    This usually means that your system is not well equilibrated.
    For more information and tips for troubleshooting, please check the GROMACS
    website at http://www.gromacs.org/Documentation/Errors


    also unstable machine appears later on in the terminal

    but the system churns out other bigbeta WU without issues?
