Issue



Some or all of the backup jobs show superseded status and do not run even though they appear to be scheduled to avoid conflicts.

 


Error



No errors are shown, only the backup job status sometimes shows as "superseded.".


Cause



The job definitions may not have migrated properly from the previous version of Backup Exec.

 


Solution



If editing the job definitions fails to resolve the issue, delete them and then configure new backup operations.
