how do I cancel job if no tape is present - Backup Exec 11d Server 2003

Created: 23 Jul 2012 • Updated: 31 Mar 2014 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have the occasion to need to cancel a backup job if someone forgets to change the tape on a friday - otherwise the job starts first thing monday morning. 

i have looked everywhere in settings, in schedule, and time window but can't seem to find anything on how to do this.

Is there actually a way? and if so, where is the configuration for such a change?

I tried there - only found one for netware. that's why i posted the question here

thanks though

apologies, the first time i clicked your link, i was taken to the general KB page - and had zero luck

now i see a tech article, however, my version doesn't have the cancel option in the time window settings

Thanks, that looks like that might be it - solution 1b is the only option available to me - 1a is not.
