Error 11: Exponent already tested M43436633
 
I formated my hard disk on July 24 and copied Prime95 from June 16 backup. Get Updating computer information on the server
Sending expected completion date for M43436633: Aug 16,2008
ERROR 11: Exponent already tested.
I tried the Advanced option and manual communication and got to
Unreserving exponent 43436644
ERROR 2: Server database crashed or exponent not assigned to this computer. The FAQ at [URL]http://www.mersenne.org/ips/faq.html[/URL] may have more information. Will try contacting server again in 60 minutes.
Should I wait another three minutes or is there something else I should be doing?

From the v5 database:
Exponent Status
43436633 No factors below 2^68
P-1 B1=725000
Unverified LL 59FECD6C2EB4CE__ by "Douglas " on 2008-07-12

So a user named Douglas finished LL on it July 12th. Did you take very long with this exponent since it was assigned to someone else? I think if there is no update to the server in 60 days it gets reassigned.

I *think* you can finish that exponent and get credit for doublechecking it, but someone else need to confirm that.

I think it should work if you wait until it has expired from the v4 server (on August 15) before the exponent is finished. Then you would get Primenet credit automatically.

Unreserving it would waste all the work you have done already. If the Error 2 keeps coming every 60 minutes, try deleting prime.spl (note: only in this case when you unreserved an exponent).

If you really want to skip the exponent and get a new one, stop (and exit?) the client, edit worktodo.ini and remove the line with 43436633, and then restart the client.
