Anyone has ChatGPT fine-tuning job stuck at validating files?

It has been about ~40-50 minutes since I submitted the finetuning job

It has been stuck on validating files step, even though there is no formatting issue.

Let me know if anyone else is experiencing it?

I’m stuck on the same problem at this moment. Watching the thread

eventually the job got unstuck, but wasn’t fully clear to me when/why it is happening. would be helpful to get ETA from OpenAI on job start/completion

I believe that was result of the queue time to fine-tuning. My job was unblocked after 50 minutes. I’d read a post here talking about the queue times for fine-tuning (30-120min) depending of the day time. Check here:
