I have recently added a few workstations to my account. All two of them took a while to start crunching, but one still has not received any tasks. This machine does have a different configuration compared to the others.

It is machine ID: 10475984. I can see it on the web listed as one of my computers but it has not been issued any work units.

Can someone help me build an app_config file. That may be the problem?

Thank you in advance for any help or time spend on this issue,

James

The science part of this board may not be the ideal place to post a question like your´s.
Be so kind as to continue the discussion in the relevant apps section.

Meanwhile you may change your preferences for all of your hosts as they show a lot of errors in the logs:
Max # CPUs -> 1 or 2

If this works you may increase the setting (up to 4).

Okay I found the problem.

Boinc was not finding Virtualbox. I install boinc, then Virtualbox on a headless workstation. Once I reinstalled Boinc it found the Virtualbox installation and the project downloaded work-units.
