How to restart failed Job? BESR 7, 8, 8.5, 2010

Hi everyone!

I use BESR 7, 8, 85, and 2010 on many locations; mostly with SBS 2003, SBS 2008. Backup runs to qnap nas over gbit ethernet (very fast). I sceduled 2 Backups a day, starting at 0:00 with 6 h time between. I recogniced, that the backup at 0:00 failed many times (every 2 - 10 days - depends on the location). I resceduled the time at 0:30 with the same result. If i start the Backup in the next morning manually, it works perfect. Some times the agent will be frozen, but only every few weeks (i kill and restart the BESR and shadow copy services manually in this case).

Does anyone know how to automaticaly restart the backup job 30 minutes after a fail? Does anyone have an idea how to kill the agent automaticaly if its frozen?


my actual kill BESR batch:

net stop "Backup Exec System Recovery"
net stop "Volumeschattenkopie"
net stop "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider"
net stop "Symantec SymSnap VSS Provider"
net stop "SymSnapService"
taskkill /IM VProSvc.exe /F
taskkill /IM vprotray.exe /F

net start "Backup Exec System Recovery"
net start "Volumeschattenkopie"
net start "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider"
net start "Symantec SymSnap VSS Provider"
net start "SymSnapService"
