Backup Exec 2012 fails to back up itself
I have a BE 2012 server that backs up a number of VMWare virtual machines and regular stand-alone Windows servers. These jobs run without issue.
The last job is to back up itself. This job always fails. It starts as "queued" but never does anything. The job is backup to disk, then duplicate to tape on a Windows 2008 R2 server. The backup is the c:\ drive only, where the BE binaries are located. I have another drive for backup to disk that is not backed up.
I try to cancel the job, nothing happens. I try to stop the BE services, they don't stop. I have to reboot the server to get BE to be responsive again.
In the Application log, the only thing I see are database timeouts. Nothing else or anything in other logs.
