I replaced the malfunctioning GTX 970 in my xeon rig runing win7 with a Cayman Pro Radeon 6900 series that I got foir free. The trouble is the card can't get work.
The log file is full of the following.

05:16:04:WARNING:WU01:FS01:Failed to get assignment from '18.218.241.186:80': No WUs available for this configuration

05:16:04:ERROR:WU01:FS01:

: Could not get an assignment 

 

The card is tested with furmark and is functional. I.m investigating posible driver issues. The card is listed in GPUs.txt

 

The one forum thread I found had a lot of "I just let it run and it got work eventually."

 

Thoughts.

Yeah its happened to me before too when switching cards. Sometimes it will work "eventually", but it usual never did for me so I just removed the GPU in the folding client and than re-added it.

It's a challenge keeping your folding client running on older cards, and older dual GPU cards even more so,.. nothing worse then running a work unit and crashing/ dropping the WU at 98% completed, or constantly crashing a few minuets into starting a new WU.

 

If you want 100% stable folding rig that will run 24/7 at 100% load on the cards with zero issues, you need to run new current gen cards, keep the drivers updated to current version, and replace cards every 12-months with new current gen cards.

 

Basically running older hardware and rolling back drivers to perhaps seem stable, is like running beta work units,.. your going to spend a lot of time restarting, adjusting and dropping work units, the difference however is running beta work units the PPD is higher per WU to compensate for the frustration, and running older cards with outdated drivers doesn't pay extra it just slowly drives you insane.  :fp:
