I have a host who don't exist anymore. R.I.P.
I'm sure I crunch all WU who where in the cache before shut it down.
But S@H now insist to show there are 680WU on it's cache "In Progress" (Ghost? Who knows?)
Some have the expiration date of Jan 31 or ever far.
Is there any way i could tell the server something like, hey this host did not exist anymore, send all his in progress WU to others hosts?

None that I am aware of. The only way to clear the ghosts would be to put that host back into service and reset the project on it. You will just have to wait for the ghosts to time out.

If the drive from the old host is still available and could be temporarily booted, you could then detach from the project.
If that is not an option, then they will all be reissued in their own good time.
