It is probably the bemcmd.exe that is not found.  Check that it is available in that path.  Better still, logon to the media sever using the BESA and run the command from a command prompt.  Trouble-shoot from there.

Also, have you created the job Full Weekly GRT and put it on hold?

Hi, Kirk !

I recommend add to path variable "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec".

Next, command bemcmd.exe -o1 -j"Full Weekly GRT" place into batch file, e.g. ''startnextjob.cmd"

In Post-command field specify full path to batch file, e.g. "c:\aaaa\bbbb\startnextjob.cmd"

This is tried way.
