Hello,
Just wondering if there are any concerns with changing a report deadline for a result in the database?

I have a host that's been permanently scrubbed, it had an item of work it didn't complete. I want to send it out to a client again without having to wait.

Please advise.

Cheers
Seth

If it is just one item you can increase target_nresults by 1 and set transition_time to 0 for the workunit in question. This will immediately produce another result/task that gets send to another host.

If you know for sure that the host was scrubbed and will never come back online again you can also decrease the deadline to now-1 for the result and also set transition_time to 0 for the workunit to trigger the creation of a new result/task.
