I downloaded/updated VirtualBox to 6.1.26 and that appears to have solved my problem.

You may have jumped from the frying pan into the fire. After a while, you will probably see "Vm job unmanageable" suspensions where the tasks don't run.
If so, you could try downgrading to VirtualBox 5.2.44. At least it works on Windows 10. It may not be compatible with Windows 11.

Otherwise, you have to wait about a day for the tasks to start running again, or else you have to reboot.

PS - LHC is much better than most. I have seen it more often on Cosmology and some others.

I have occasionally seen "Job Unmanageable" messages, but they usually occurred when there were reboots before the VBox app had time to close the jobs and settle down. Hopefully, I won't find new ones occurring. I believe that the current BOINC package includes VBox 6.1.12, so hopefully a downgrade to a Vbox 5 version won't be necessary. Let's hope it all continues well.

Yes, went also not back to 5.2.44.
Have now the upgrade Win11pro and live also with some unmanageable (1 or 2 in a day).

This is a temporary problem and so this job will be rescheduled for another time.

The OS is Win11pro.
Edit: Today will upgrading Virtualbox 6.1.28 to 6.1.30 and updating OS Win11pro.

The Error was because of a yellow Triangle from a disruppted Atlas-Task.
After deleting this vm_image.vdi in Virtualbox App, other Atlas-Tasks started well.

Is this on your RAM-disk BOINC and only happening with ATLAS-jobs?

Btw: It would be good, when the LHC-project would use the same newest vboxwrapper for ATLAS and Theory like it did for CMS.

No Crystal,
have no RAM-Disk in use. Atlas is running with WCG-MCM tasks and Einstein-GPU tasks.
This crash of Atlas-Tasks was at 22 UTC.
Saw at 2 UTC ;-) some disconnects of the Network on this PC, and have no explanation.
One other PC (RYZENMP) had also this morning (after some sleep) two vm_image.vdi with yellow triangle.
Yes, it would be a good idea to use the best vboxwrapper for ALL Virtualbox- Tasks at Cern.
