Might as well just let it run

Might as well just let it run and sit in queue until the guys over at einstein get this figured out. I have two WUs sitting waiting for the scheduler to become available. After I tried to reschedule, the length of time extended to 2+ hours before it would retry again.

I went and updated my general


I went and updated my general preferences. As soon as I did this, the 2 completed files uploaded and then it gave me a bunch of new files. I was able to make this work on all my machines at 8:50 pm Atlanta time

Hey, that works!!! Update preferences and then update project and away we go!!!

Updating preferences must kick something into life as I'm sure I tried updating the project on its own before this.

Good find!!!

Cheers,
Gary.

I've just suspended all

I've just suspended all projects other than einstein to let it finish the last 25 minutes of it to see if the problem remains at this time (and if I get the same response in case it does)

David Knittle: yup, BOS thinks all is well, which is why I only now have become aware that there is a problem, as I haven't checked the message boards earlier today. I just checked the last response BOS got, and that's just the usual one.

For now it would seem changes on the scheduler were made, but at some point things got messed up a bit - but that's just a guess based on reports on the boards and the fact that the scheduler actually remains online.

Ooops! Hit the reply

Ooops!

Hit the reply button twice. Don't have much to say on this one really.

In case anyone missed it, it seems that if you update your general preferences then update your project, everything starts working again. :)

My goodness :D That leaves

My goodness :D

That leaves me with two questions:

1) Should everyone now do this?
2) What was the cause?
