This morning I found Rakesearch listed twice in the BOINC managers of all my machines.

I noticed that when clicking on the referrer link to the project website, one forwards to the old http website the other to the https website.
I have set the project to complete the current tasks and then to autoremove.
Unfortunately, when trying to remove rakesearch using BAM! only the https project version will be removed. The outdated one remains!
There appears to be no way to get rid of the broken http project version.

What is happening?

Michael.

[edit]: Strangely, only starting today, tasks error out with "given up" status and no error report in the relevant tasks.

Hello Michael!
I was unable to register the behavior of BOINC Manager like described. May be it was a "local event?"

I had the same issue, BOINC reported that I am attached twice. I am attached to the project via BAM! (https://www.boincstats.com/bam/), probably it did something wrong. I suspect that it was changing project address from http to https, and for some time computers were attached twice.

I'm not sure, but if I remember right, along time project URL on BOINC stats staying without https. But now it starts with https. May by URL was changed and that caused a problem for computers that have already been "connected" by HTTP protocol?
