This issue has been solved. See solution.

Before with backup exec 2010, it was possible exclude a job one certain day:

Now it with 2012 alone is possible exlcude the complete date. Symantec not yet responded me if any way exists of making it.

It is very important in my case, for that I am one holiday and I don't need to exclude the complete date if not some jobs that are executed that date.

Hi

Please see Elizabeth comment in the link below
We have received a lot of feedback from our users and there were several regarding how we've made it a bit tricky to schedule some backup scenarios. We are in the process of enhancing some of the schedule options. These new options are set to be released soon (sorry can't give an exact date).

If you are interested in taking a look at this and give me some feedback on these new options, please send me a DM and I can set up a WebEx session. I'm very curious to see if the new additions we are working on will allow you to schedule your backups.

BTW - anyone else who is reading this thread and is interested, please feel free to DM me!!

Thank you for the invitation, I for the moment believe that with the comments that received is enough, I rely on that we will have a solution soon.

Yesterday it was holliday in Argentina, what we made were disabled the day Monday of the job that we didn't want that they are executed, we today will have to enable them again so that they are executed on next Monday.
