Thread: job engine service won't start

  1. job engine service won't start


    Hey all

    I've got a problem.
    Recently my backup exec 8.5 hasn't been working.
    The reason for this is that the backup exec job engine service hangs in a
    pending state. "starting", if i look in administrative tools->services.
    I've tried to restart the server with no luck. I've also tried to stop all
    the other backup services but they all reject to stop because they can't
    end the job engine service.

    What happened before it started to hang:
    Backup exec wouldn't start at all , displaying the message: another server
    with the same serialnumber exists in the network. Since that server no longer
    takes care of the backup i disabled all the backupexec services on that one.
    After that I was allowed to start up backup exec.

    Has anyone the faintest idea of how to get around this?

    I've tried reinstalling the whole thing,
    but it still hangs.
    The message i get in eventwiever is:

    The Backup Exec 8.x Job Engine service hung on starting.
