I have an issue with backup exec 10d.  I have a job scheduled for daily at 11pm and it starts and finishes correctly but in the middle of the job another job of the same type and details completely duplicate kicks off running and causes a problem which sends us an email of a failed backup.  I get no email of the successful backup because the other job is interfering with it, but I dont see any dupilicate job in the list.  This is weird issue

10d is quite old (2005) and I don't have a system running that version. Does the Job History report any useful details?
I kindly ask for more details (must be sure if I understood correctly):
a. Is it 2 instances of the same Job, or
b. Is it 1 instance of 2 different Jobs?

Did you consider deleting the Job (or the 2 conflicting Jobs) and creating a new Job with same settings BUT with another name?

2 instances of the same job one lidget starts at 11pnm and the other starting at 215am.  The first one finishes at 4am and I get no email confirm but I get a failed confirm from the second, which shouldnt even be running.

I would delete the Job and create a new one with a new name (not the same name used on the old Job) and same settings. Schedule the new Job to run only once per day.

Check scheduling; maybe it somehow got scheduled twice.
Check to see if it's been set up as a job run from the command line and Windows scheduler.

I was able to create a seperate location for the backup and it worked fine.  My next step would be if it fails again is to delete and recreate the job.  Thanks All.
