Job status for a job created using policy may show "Blocked by template rule" even when no template rule is set and the scheduled start time may also show an older date.
To resolve the issue follow either of the steps below:
1. Open the policy and click on Edit Template. And resubmit the policy without making any changes to it.
4. Recreate the complete Policy.
5. If two job from the same policy using common selection list are running at same time change the time on one of the jobs so that they do not run simultaneously.
In this particular case, it may be needed to run both jobs at the same time, for example to target the backup to tape AND to disk. If this is the case, instead of using a policy and two templates, configure two separate backup jobs, without using a policy.
