Backup Exec 8.6 will not execute scheduled jobs
Posted on 2003-11-17
I am running Windows 2000 SBS with backup exec 8.6 installed with a sony 9000 DDS3 drive.
The installation has worked fine for over a year. Then it just stopped executing scheduled backups. The job will stay marked as scheduled for about 24hrs then go to Missed. I have tried replacing the drive, but it did not change the results. I have created new jobs and it made no difference. It does not matter what type of job it is Inventory..Catalog. I have created a backup to file device to rule out any hardware problems, and I got the same result. The only job that will run is the update Antivirus file.
I have also checked the knowledge base with Veritas. There was one solution about stopping all services and deleting the scheduling file, then restarting it had no effect.
Please help. I am out of Ideas.
