  1. Prevent BENT job from running during office hours


    Is there a way of automatically preventing and/or aborting a job during a
    specify time period or X hours after the start of a scheduled job? Sometimes
    a backup will hang up (bad tape or needs another tape) and the local tape
    admin person will put another tape in during office hours which then continues
    the backup, interfering with the operation of some programs. Thanks

    Nope.

    You need to either give the "local admin person" rights to abort the
    job, or at the very least, give them ExecView and have them check their
    local server before swapping tapes. If the job is still blue, then they
    can call you and you can abort the job or let it run as you deem fit.
