Seriously?  I thought I was done with my Backup Exec problems for the day.  Now I've got this.  Can somebody PLEASE tell me what to do????

That means BE has nothing to write too...or your server is Paused.

Restart the services, or Pause/Unpause the server (if still available in BE 2012) and see if this resolves it.

Hope your day goes better...

OK so I'm embarrased to say I had it set only to run one job at a time.  Duh...I've been working on BE issues for 3 days straight now and I guess my brain's kinda fried.  Thanks for the info!
