I have an i7-4790 machine (Ubuntu 16.04) with VirtualBox 5.2.10 installed. I have selected only LHCb and Theory, but am getting ATLAS too, about half the work units in fact.
I have enabled "accept work from other applications?", but the server status shows that the others always have work available. So why am I getting any ATLAS at all?

It wouldn't be so bad if they were native ATLAS, but I am sent VBox Atlas over half the time. Can this be fixed? Otherwise, I will have to disable "accept work from other applications".
I have a non-VBox machine set up to run native ATLAS only, and will just run them there if necessary.

EDIT: If LHC places a higher priority on ATLAS than the others, that is fine with me and I will be happy to do them. I am asking mainly for the native ATLAS.

Maybe this have something to do with the "allow beta apps" option in your preferences. Try to disable this option and see if you still get ATLAS tasks.

It could be. I will give it a try.

Unfortunately, I am still getting ATLAS, but only the VBox ones, since I don't have the "test apps" enabled. It was a good thought though.

I will just deselect "accept work from other applications".
