Backup Exec 10 - Job Queued

Posted on 2008-09-29

Due to a power failure, my Exchange server was shutdown. When I restarted the server everything was fine until it came to the nightly backup. The job starts but its status changes after a couple of minutes to Queued. Ive restarted the services and tried to run the job again but the same has happened.

Any ideas?

Hi daiwhyte,

If the full backupexec is not running on your exchange server, then try reinstalling the client on your Exchange server?

Cheers.

Trying to avoid a reinstall of the client, it shares a db with our sophos service. Last time I messed with the backup exec client, it took my spam and virus services off line.

Thanks for the advice mind.

So no data is backed up at all? What driver as you using for the tape drive? I have found that is't wise to use Backupexec's drivers rather than the manufacturer's drivers.

Strange...

Ok, then I would suggest that you make sure that the "media set" you use is set up to have a limited "overwrite protection" period and possibly move some of the media (marked as B2Dxxxxxxx) from your current media set to the "Scratch" media set.
