  1. BackupExec v9.2.1401.3 (Automatic cancellation of jobs)

    Hello again,

    i am lost in finding an option to automatically cancel jobs in BackupExec
    for NetWare, when a tape is missing. Instead of an automatic cancellation of
    the job, an alert is issued that has to be responded to reschedule the job
    for the next day.

    This means: If I forget to insert a tape on one day and forget to respond
    the alert, the job is not rescheduled automatically and all new tapes are
    not processed, cause the alert is unresponded!

    We have around 11 NetWare servers running BackupExec v9.2 for NetWare soon
    and I really would appreciate a similar option like in BackupExec for
    Windows that can automatically cancel jobs after a specified amount of time.

    Am I dumb or do I just have overlooked anything in options or policies that
    can solve my problem! I must emphasize that I mostly use the NLM screen on
    the server itself, though I remember I searched for this option in the
    Windows BackupExec Administrator (the one for NetWare of course) as well,
    but couldn't find anything useful so far.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    With best regards,
    Hammelbeine

    Hi Chris,

    this should help I suppose. I thought these options were for different
    tasks. I give it a try soon.
    Many thanks again for the prompt reply.

    Best regards,
    Hammelbeine
