Thread: Jobs Simply Not Executing and No Warnings

  1. Jobs Simply Not Executing and No Warnings

    I am completely frushtrated with this software. We upgraded from 8.5 to 8.6
    for the backup to file feature. What a mistake. For example, we now have
    trouble restoring and backing up SQL Server across a firewall because you
    cannot connect to a SQL Server 2000 unless you have a name associated with
    it, ie, you cannot use IP addresses.

    Now down to the real problem. We are experiencing serious trouble. Our
    backups will run for many days flawlessly then, without warning, they simply
    stop working. No notifications, nothing. When you stop the services, the
    job engine gets hung up and you have to use the all powerful kill command.
    Below is the last error message you get before the suspended animation
    problem occurs. Again, no notifications (including positive, which is the
    only method to determine that a problem occured), nothing. When you pull up
    the client, nothing refreshes properly as if it doesn't know what time a day
    or what day of the month it is. Obviously a critical service is hanging the
    whole BENT system.

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Backup Exec
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 32770
