Scheduled Jobs Time Out - Manual is OK - Backup Exec 9.1

I've just upgraded to a LTO auto-loader, using Backup Exec 9.1 for Windows, I've created 3 new jobs that run at 11pm, two to tape and one to file. Every one of these jobs is timing out every night; the tapes are loaded into the drives but do not backup anything.

Strange thing is I can run the jobs manually without issue. The tapes are loaded, the backup runs, verifies and completes, no errors. I have also done two Testruns and they were also successful.

I can't see it being a driver error, so I'm stumped.

Any ideas greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Check the eventlogs and the BE logs for any messages that may give some insight. Also make sure the jobs can use the system account and don't have to logon to a user account for the unattended backup.

I changed the overwrite protection period on the two media sets yesterday, and it seemed to do the trick. One of the drives went offline but that's a different issue. The other performed the backup with no problems.

Looks like I may be on the road to getting this resolved finally :)
