We have a problem on Backup Exec 12.5 (with all hotfixes) installed on Windows Server 2008. All jobs shows "Sever Paused" status. BeUtility also shows 'Server Paused". When i go to Devices tab there is no option to unpause server. It shows "Paused" (greyed out). What should I do to fix it ??

Are the jobs running with a byte count, or are all of the jobs unable to execute?

Try going to the devices tab and see if you are able to pause and un-pause the Media Server from there. You can also refer to the links below:

You may also want to consider upgrading to Backup Exec 2010R3 or the latest version, Backup Exec 2014 as the issue has not been observerd in either.
