Backup Exec 11D. Problem with jobs hanging in queue state.
Posted on 2009-04-08
I am experiencing problems with jobs just hanging in queue. I have let it hang for about 30 minutes and then I cancel it. Then it just says cancel pending until I manually restart all the Backupexec services. Then the backupexec job engine service can't be stopped "in an ordarly fashion". But eventually I get it to stop and restart all the services.
The scenario is one W2K3 server with filebackup only to a HP Ulttrium LTO2 device.
I am using the Symantec drivers for this device. It locates it, can inventory and scan it without any problems, but when I start a job to it it will never run. The device and tape in the gui turns green so it seems to be doing something.
I have checked for any alerts in BE, checked that the tapes can be written to and checked for any unusual in the eventlog's on the server. Nothing yet that can explain this.
Note that this server is on a ship outside of India somewhere and I am sitting in Norway over RDP over a 256kb satelite link. Any more questions MAY take some time to respond to :)
Also. I have a NAS connected and the jobs will not run "backup to disk folder" either.
Anyone that have experienced this kind of thing?
