Hi Support

We have a broken backup Job in our Virtual Storage Console.
and we cannot delete them.

The status of the Job keeps on saying "running" even when the Job is suspended.
and because of that We cannot delete this.

We have rebooted our vCenter Server a couple of times and this does not go away?

Please refer to screen shot.

Does anyone know any other way to delete this Job manuallyScreenShot?

Have your tried to connect to the host running the Virtual Storage Console appliance directly with VIC, and then trying to delete the backup job?
