I have a bunch of computers running BOINC, they all run in 'service mode' except for my personal computer. I have a BAM account. I tried attaching one of the 'service mode' BOINC clients to BAM. It didn't seem to accept it, yet when I boot the system this 'service mode' machine went out to BAM read the preferences and took it out of "service mode".

The way I fixed the problem - and it's not I fix that I like, was to turn off AMS then uninstall BOINC on the "service mode" machine, reinstall BOINC and set it to 'service mode'.

Is there any way to have AMS and have computers running in 'service mode'?

Thank you for your excellent work!

Service mode is not a preference an account manager can set. And I have always used BAM as a service...

If you stop the service and start BOINC from the start menu, it will run normally (not as service). And you can also stop BOINC Manager (which will close the core client, if it was the one that started it in the first place), and start it as a service.

BOINC should give a line on the message log saying if it's a service or not:
Executing as a daemon
BOINC is running as a service and as a non-system user.
No application graphics will be available.

Thanks PovAddict. I'm really not sure where I went wrong, but I'll try starting AMS again and see what occurs.

you should be able to use a manager (BOINC Manager, BoincView etc) with the BOINC client running as a service, without having to restart it as a regular process

I've always had BOINC running as a service and never had any such issues, either connecting to the core client from the manager, or when using an AMS
