I need a solution. A have 3 backup jobs which I don't see in BackupExec Console, but I can see them in through powershell. When I want to delete them I get this reply. Can you please give me an advice, what could be the reason of that ?

BEMCLI> get-bejob "Daily Backup\\ibmms-Differential-Full" | Remove-bejob

This might be because of possible lost link in BEDB. I would suggest you to open a support case and get the entires removed from the BEDB (Backup Exec Database)

Hello Jaydeep,

This is because the job Daily Backup\\ibmms-Differential-Full is not found.  I don't know why you have two double back slashes in your job name.  This is not normal.

You should run Get-BEJob by itself to get the complete list of jobs and then extract the correct string for your jobname in your cmdlets.
