Backup exec scheduled job won't start.

Had a job fail in backup exec. Canceled after 8 hours, byte count was at zero. So, I started the job manually and it completed. Came back today, failed for last night, byte count zero. So I can run the job manually, but it fails after 8 hours with 0 byte count if backup exec is left alone...Services are running, credentials passed, job isn't on hold. Any ideas?

Thanks!

What is the error you are getting when it fails.  Job log

Check if media is required is available in destination.

There is no error, the error is that it ran for 8 hours with a zero byte count. That's whats so confusing. I'm pretty sure the media is available. Although there are little red x's on all the tapes. Would running an inventory possibly fix the issue?

Have you test with a new job? Is it the same case with all jobs?

Just one job, its the daily backup. I ran an inventory which passed, and a test backup which passed. Really if it fails again tonight I will re-create the job on Monday. I don't don't know what else to do.

Ensure all alerts are cleared.

Could be the job corrupted. Run a repair on database using beutility.

Turns out a restart was needed, problem with exchange on the server. During the restart the backup was running. Didn't catch this right away, thanks for all your help though!
