I'm trying to get ATLAS going on a new machine but Boinc doesn't seem to want to give it any work units. I have the same computing & project settings on it as on my other machine which is doing ATLAS just fine. I tried suspending the other two projects running on it currently and even that didn't get me any work. The server info here says there is ATLAS work available - any ideas what could be happening?

Do you have VT-X (Intel) or AMD-V (AMD) enabled in BIOS?.
If yes, there is a Checklist from Yeti in ATLAS-Messages.

Virtualization is enabled in the BIOS now as far as I can tell. I looked at Yeti's checklist, it seems to be mostly about issues with ongoing work units, not failure to receive any work units at all. All the event log is telling me is:

10/4/2017 7:48:03 AM | LHC@home | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
10/4/2017 7:48:03 AM | LHC@home | Requesting new tasks for CPU

Check Number 1 - 6 from my checklist


Supporting BOINC, a great concept !

It was #5. I changed that line in client_state to 0 and now it's downloading a couple of tasks. Nice.
