ArcServe 9.0 on Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2004-11-22
I was recently asked to evaluate my companies tape backups and to make any necessary changes. I have no familiarity with ArcServe since I have always used Veritas Backup Exec in the past. I noticed that the backups have not run in several weeks which was shocking to say the least and that there is a job that I cannot get to clear. It simply says that the job is stopping but thats it. I haven't been able to remove/delete this job from the manager. I have tried disabling the 3 arcserve services (tape, engine, database), and the asrunjob.exe is still running. I am thinking that I need to kill this process, but I may need something like pskill.exe to accomplish this. I am also wondering if there is anything else I should watch out for when using ArcServe.. any pointers? etc..
