I have a server (Win Server 2003 standard) with an Iomega Rev35 drive in, running Veritas BEWS 9.1. It's worked just fine for over a year, but recently, i've run into a situation that is specifically documented in Symantec's knowledgebase, but their resolution isn't working. The problem is the job never fires off. At the sheduled time, it starts, but instead of going into a "running" state, the status stays "Queued", and the job must be cancelled. Symantec seems to indicate that this is the result of a lock file (.lck) not getting cleared after a prior backup. In my situation, however, this is not the case. There is no lock file present on any of my media when the backup starts. I've found that deleting the removable backup to disk device from the devices tab, and re-creating it works for a few days, but the issue resumes after that.
Anybody run into this?
