Can anyone interpret this? https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/result.php?resultid=1463541284

It includes many of these lines:

Hypervisor System Log:
24:11:34.575288 ERROR [COM]: aRC=E_ACCESSDENIED (0x80070005) aIID={85cd948e-a71f-4289-281e-0ca7ad48cd89} aComponent={MachineWrap} aText={The object functionality is limited}, preserve=false aResultDetail=0"

Appears to be a problem with permissions rights set up by Rosetta in the inital virtual box configuration trying to read and/or write the virtual computer.

Nothing you can do except report on Rosetta forum, hopefully they actually read what's posted there.

Unfortunately staff are rare in that forum, there are many users discussing it, problems are random. The odd thing is, I have 4 computers trying to run them. An i5 8600K, which works fine. A Ryzen 9 3900XT, which appears to do them, but they don't validate. And the tasks I just linked to are from two dual xeon X5650 machines, which produce the error, and don't use any CPU at all.

Why would a configuration be wrong in some and not others? This seems to be what others get too, either they always work or they never work. And why would it always be wrong on some machines and always right on others? They all run the same latest Windows 10 OS, there shouldn't be anything different with permissions at my end.

I've asked in the LHC forum, since they use vbox on almost all tasks and might know what the problem is: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5781

LHC think it ran out disk space in the image, would you agree?

From LHC:

7 GB is rather huge for this kind of usecase and it appears that the virtual disk has only 1 GB space left.
LHC@home usually allows up to 20 GB capacity.
Part of the error output on one of my machines failing a Rosetta VB Python task:

2022-01-07 22:37:22 (9144):
Command: VBoxManage -q showhdinfo "C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\0/vm_image.vdi"
Exit Code: 0
Output:

Parent UUID: base
State: created
Type: normal (base)
Location: C:\ProgramData\BOINC\slots\0\vm_image.vdi
Storage format: VDI
Format variant: dynamic default

Size on disk: 7115 MBytes
Encryption: disabled
Property: AllocationBlockSize=1048576
Also, I'm wondering if "dynamic default" means it should auto-grow?

It doesn't. LHC tell me capacity is the upper limit. I think perhaps Rosetta need to check this.
