We renamed our server and forgot to remove the pending jobs. Now the jobs are tied to the old server name and I cant delete them.

As far as I can tell i managed to delete the subplans. But i cant remove the maintenance plans themselves. the error i get is below. By the attached screen shot it is obvious that my jobs point to the old server name but I cannot change or remove them. he option is greyed out. How can i remove these jPlans?

easiest solution would be to rename your server back to old name remove them and change it back again.
