At the moment the VM is very unstable due a corrupt file system (4 crashes last time) which is needed to repair. Also I want to upgrade Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 then 16.10. To to this I must backup the VM to start some testing. At this time no new registrations were available. I will wait until all WUs are back. More infos are coming soon until the current run is finished.

Hello,

Are there still problems with the system? I'm not receiving any new tasks for at least a couple of days now...

If we're waiting for a couple of users to finish, it's a bit of a waste of resources for the rest of us...

Thanks!

Iam still waiting for the rest of the WUs, maybe I will process the rest on weekend. There could be some tests / repairing on weekend so no new work will be sent out.

As expected not all WUs are back. If you still have a WU let it running. Tomorrow I will start the following:

- VM backup
- trying to repair the filesystem
- upgrade to the latest ubuntu version if possible (if not let the old system there)
- replace validators due some changes on the BOINC source code
- do some tests in the BOINC environment

In this time no new registrations and uploads/downloads are possible. I cant tell you how long does it take. A big thanks to all for a lot of new host registrations in the last days. I will try to send out new work as soon as possible.

If you have any challenges planned let me know. I need some time to prepare some things.

The filesystem looks good so far, another problem was also fixed in the OS, sadly I have tried several times to upgrade to ubuntu 14.04 but due a kernel bug I couldnt start the OS again. I dont want to build a hole new VM with the latest OS so I must live with that.

Next step is to build new validators now.

Update:

New validators are now online. Lets see how its working.
