Problems when folding Win7 GPU + VM/Ubuntu SMP?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of 2600k systems each with a pair nvidia gpus.  They both run win7 as their primary OS and have Ubuntu 12 LTS running under VMWare.  I run the V7 Windows client to fold on the GPUs and the V7 Linux client configured for smp.  I had both systems running during the FFW and November Foldathon without issue, but when I recently restarted them I saw a large number of failed WU. Running just the GPU's seems to have eliminated the problem. 

 

Does running 2 instance of the V7 client require special configuration?  Something that I managed to avoid during the FFW and foldathon?

'2 instances' as in 1 GPU v7 client (2 slots) in Windows and 1 in Linux/VM? That works fine. I do that for 1 GPU and Linux/VM. Make sure the 2 slots have a different ID for the GPU slot or -1 to let the client decide.

Or do you mean 2 instances for each GPU on 1 PC?

'2 instances' as you described--1 under windows for the gpus and 1 under ubuntu for the smp client.

 

Hmph ... wonder what was going on.
