Try stopping and restarting the BAckup EXec services. You *may* find that the Job Engine won't stop and goes off into limbo (the service state goes to "Stopping" and doesn't change.) - if this happens, you need to reboot the server - no way around it I'm afraid.

Hope this helps.

Yah, it happens: Please submit 'Process Explorer' and stop the devices manully.

There you go:

Download that utility and runit. You will notice 'Veritas Software Corporation' made processes (under 'Company Name' column). just 'Kill' them and restart the services via service manager...

That easy...

Thanks. That was a simple, perfect solution. The Process Explorer stopped the services, I restarted manually and the stuck job was complete and the next day's job is set to run. Thank you.

I had a similar problem with the Backup Exec services hanging and managed to restart them without a reboot.
I stopped the following processes in 'Task Manager' - 'Processes':

beserver.exe
benetns.exe
bengine.exe

Then I stopped all the remaining Backup Exec services that were still running using 'Computer Management- - Services'

I then restarted all the Backup Exec services using 'Computer Management'

Everything was then back to normal.
