Container Workloads Troubleshooting
Oh no, you’ve tried to enable Container Workloads but you're getting errors or not seeing any jobs come through?! Quick, try some of these solutions to get you chopping again.
- Check the Salad App and ensure that both your CPU is enabled and the Container Environment is enabled.
- Reboot your computer after setting up the Container Environments. You might need to do this twice in some cases.
- If Containers are set up and you are not seeing any jobs, be patient. As long as an error message is not popping up, then you are ready to run containers when they are available.
- Note: Container jobs will not be available at all times, unlike mining, your earnings will depend on the needs of Salad’s network.
- Attempting to limit the performance of the container environment will reduce your likelihood of receiving container jobs and may result in a ban.
- Containers may not work if you are using remote desktop to access a computer.
- Salad cannot be run on a VM, and some third party VM software might interfere with Salad Container jobs.
- If you have older virtualization software installed (e.g.,VMWare version prior to 15.5.5 or VirtualBox version prior to 6) that might interfere with Salad.
- If you are seeing “Failed to Update Container Environment” or repeated degraded messages that go away if the container environment is disable you may need to update WSL manually.
- To update, click on the Windows button and navigate to the Microsoft store on your computer.
- Search for Windows Subsystem for Linux and install.
- In some cases, you may need to reinstall Salad.
