What does the term "Completed, validation inconclusive" mean.?

If I saw this in Prime Grid for example and looked at the wu I would find that 2 computers have run the wu without an error but somehow don't agree and a third computer -an rarely more than a third- would resolve the is.

So the use of the term on MW@H must mean something totally different because the wu in question has only been completed on my computer.

Thanks.

It means awaiting confirmation by another cruncher.

Thanks

Yes each Project seems to come up with it's own name for it, if you click on one of those tasks, the workunit itself not just your task, then you can see that most tasks here require a second computer to verify the results. In some cases that process can take a bit as people have large caches or pc's crash and they are lost and have to be sent out to others etc.
