The VM image has been updated to upgrade the filesystem from CernVM3 to CernVM4.

These all seem to fail with:
Command:
VBoxManage -q showhdinfo "C:\ProgramData\BOINC/projects/lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome/Theory_2023_12_13.vdi" 
Output:
VBoxManage.exe: error: Cannot register the hard disk 'C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome\Theory_2023_12_13.vdi' {a9d19666-9f42-47d2-9b06-f58d52e3215c} because a hard disk 'C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome\Theory_2023_12_12.vdi' with UUID {a9d19666-9f42-47d2-9b06-f58d52e3215c} already exists
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057), component VirtualBoxWrap, interface IVirtualBox, callee IUnknown
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "OpenMedium(Bstr(pszFilenameOrUuid).raw(), enmDevType, enmAccessMode, fForceNewUuidOnOpen, pMedium.asOutParam())" at line 179 of file VBoxManageDisk.cpp

[edit]On my other host they don't fail but all are stuck on Building rivetvm. Or maybe not stuck but takes more than 11 minutes without CPU activity.
[edit2] No CPU activity while building rivetvm but a lot of disk activity (reading). 4 tasks started at the same time, one has finished Building rivetvm but 3 still doing it. Old hdd shows max usage.

There are still 2 Theory 300.07 tasks running shown in Virtual media manager as vmi_image.vdi (2 separate) and 3 Theory 300.08 running shown under Theory_2023_12_12 (probably multiattach). All look otherwise normal (no yellow triangles in virtual media manager).
[edit]I put Theory on hold for now and re-enable it once those old ones have finished.

I had to clean the old vdi, they were all goign crazy before that. Also the 300.0x stopped working I assume since the change in file system or something.

There was a mistake in the app configuration causing a miss-match between the real name of the image and the expected name of the image. This has been resolved in the 300.10 version. The tasks are running fine on my test machine (famous last words), so have removed the beta flag.

Had yellow triangle files in vboxmanager.
After deleting them, no new tasks for Theory in Win11pro.
VBoxManage.exe: error: Cannot close medium 'S:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome\Theory_2023_12_13.vdi' because it has 3 child media

Is multiattach for Theory a new feature in Virtualbox?
