Anyone have any ideas on what is going on with the database? I've not been able to report results or download new tasks today. I've had to resort to my backup project as I've run out of Einstein work (I only had a two day cache).

As noted -- there is an ongoing database problem which has not yet been resolved even though there have been numerous hard drive, server and controller replacements. At a guess there is an underlying database corruption problem which is may have been caused originally due to a hardware problem back in mid December.

All of my results are uploading, just that the scheduler/assimilator
hasn't recorded the status in the database yet.

Keep on crunching.

I wouldn’t: certainly not if their deadlines are still in the future—even after they’ve passed, as long as the WU is still in the active database you can still get credit for late results. As the run gets finished up over the next couple of days, the load on the server should decrease; with any luck the system will manage to pick up the strays as it limps over the finish-line.

I'm not able to upload either. But I'm not getting new results as well. Are you experiencing the same?

Don't get rid of anything, everybodies in the same boat. If when the server is back online, and the deadline has passed, then they will/may have re-issued the unit to another computer, this will extend the deadline for 14 more days.

No need to abort, all my current WU's have a completion date of 28th to 30th of Jan, so a couple of weeks yet. They should have things sorted well before then.
Your pending ones are already in the bag so you are just waiting on when results come in as access to the server comes and goes.
Just hang and wait.
If you have processed for LHC, well you get used to waiting (I waited for more than 4 months for my first wu).
