Hi
The last few work items over the last couple of weeks have just sat there waiting for network access. Is there an issue or what needs to change ?

Looking at the Stderr logs of your failed Theory tasks show this lines:

Processor supports HW virtualization: no
VBoxManage.exe: error: VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes

Please check if VT-x is enabled in BIOS on that machine.

Many thanks. Not sure how it was disabled, but now enabled. Thanks again.

... Not sure how it was disabled ...

Looks like you did a couple of updates between Dec 21 and Dec 23.
This might have caused some weird settings.

BTW:
The BOINC benchmarks should be run to get recent values.

Hi again

Ok it ran after the VT-X fix and reboot. It ran for 4 hrs one of them, the others started later I guess. Then to make sure all was OK I reinstalled Bionic and Virtual Host.
A day later I note it is saying again "waiting for Network access"

What have I done wrong?

There are 5 successful Theory tasks shown from yesterday. This is fine.
You have two identical Computer shown.
When you go to your Computer-list, there is a button on the page to proof identical Computer with two different ID's.
When you click this button "Computer with same name merge" than one Computer will be retired.

Bionic and Virtual Host

Guess you mean "BOINC" and "VirtualBox"?



It ran for 4 hrs ... Then ... I reinstalled ...

Why? You wrote everything ran OK.



... I note it is saying again "waiting for Network access".

Theory/ATLAS/CMS require permanent internet access.
You may check if your BOINC client has set any network usage limits.
If yes, disable the limits:
Menu "Options" -> Computing Preferences -> Network

Where did you get that message from?
If it's a BOINC client message then it's caused by a BOINC client setting that has to be disabled.

Hi

I changed the network activity from "network activity based on preferences" to "network activity always" and now runs.

I don't understand why I have to do this when the preferences area has no checked boxs to limit it in any way.

Thanks for your assistance anyway.
