Failed VMWare jobs keep retrying until windows is closed when they're not supposed to.

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I'm using NetBackup and am encountering an annoying issue.  My backups are set to retry up to 2 times in a 12 hour period on failure.  This works fine for all jobs except the VMWare Policy jobs.  When these jobs fail, they keep retrying about every 4-5 minutes until the backup windows closes.  Does anyone know of a way to prevent this behavior?  I would like it to behave just as the rest of the jobs do.
