among my several machines, there is one on which Theory won't run.
No problem with ATLAS. And no problem with CMS (when it was still alive).

about 1 minute after start of a task, it freezes, until I abort it.

stderr shows
2020-03-28 18:39:56 (11072): Guest Log: 18:39:55 CET +01:00 2020-03-28: cranky: [ERROR] 'cvmfs_config probe sft.cern.ch' failed.
Same text is shown in VM console.

The complete stderr is shown here:

Anyone any idea what's wrong?

It is useful to upgrade Virtualbox 5.2.30 to 5.2.32 or higher in a stable Version.

that's what I did now, I upgraded to VB 6.1.0 (incl. extension pack) which runs fine on some of my other machines.

Same problem though with Theory tasks as before:
short time after start, the Windows task manager shows no CPU actitity, and the VM console shows only 4 lines:

cranky: [INFO] Detected Theory App
cranky: [INFO] Checking CVMFS
cranky: [ERROR] 'cvmfs_config probe sft.cern.ch' failed.
ERROR: Could not source logging functions from /cvmfs/grid.cern.ch/vc/bin/logging_funktions.


No idea what's wrong :-(
