    There have been a couple of reports (here and here) involving WU\'s with mixed results. One with 2 Windows/1 Linux and one with 1 Windows/2 Linux. In both cases, the \"majority\" OS results validated and got credit. But the \"minoity\" OS result was invalid.

    Anyone else notice this happening? If so, post the WU\'s here.

        I got these two WUs with no credits, too:
        561097
        561035

        someone should check this behavior!

        I have some others which are still pending. I hope these will get credits.

          I\'ve checked them and it\'s pretty interesting, that the validate state of the results are all initial, yet 2 results got credits and 1 did not. This should not happen, I think that due to the database load some queries might fail to execute. I\'ll keep investigating...

            Thank you for checking.

            I hope you can solve this problem soon.


            At the moment, my linux machine is the only one that i can use for Sztaki, and I would really like to contribute.

              This may be another one. On the other hand, the Linux result (which got the zero) also had a couple of restarts.

              As to them all being \"Initial\", this looks like it may be a wider problem. I just started looking at all my recent valid results. I couldn\'t find any that aren\'t \"Initial\". Then I looked at my results from SETI and found the same thing. But my recent uFluids results are \"Valid\". Makes me think this is an issue with the recent BOINC server upgrade.

                          Another one with zero credit for the Linux result. (The Linux unit was restarted several times.)

                            This time, one linux result and one Windows result got the credits, and the other Windows result got none.
                            And all were inerrupted several times.
                            Very strange!!

                              Adam, did you find anything yet??

                              I might have to stop crunching for Sztaki if this issue is not fixed soon.

                                                The bug in the validator has been fixed and the new validator ran the whole day catching up with the pending results. Those workunits which were OK, but waited for validation has been validated and the credit granted. However, since the new database server is not ready yet, I had to delete these workunits, to be able to access the database. It grew so big due to the jam in the validation-process, that a simple querry would run for half a day.

                                                I know you can\'t check these workunits now, but trust me, all I did was executing the fixed validator for a whole day and it did granted the pendig credits.
