Restore deleted backup job

Created: 05 Jun 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 3 comments
    Someone deleted a backup job and I'd like to restore it.  I haven't been able to find any KB articles on how to do this.  How do I restore a deleted backup job to our BackupExec server?

AFAIK, all you can do is restore the entire BackupExec database
Find the last BEDB.BAK file that you can from before the job was deleted (restore to an alternate location if needed)
Then run BEUTIL and select the option to Recover Configuration

Thanks. I tried that but it didn't restore the job.

The database is where everything is stored:  Job Definitions, Selection Lists, Schedules, B2D folder defs, etc
did the recover configuration show any errors?
try going back to an earlier copy of the BAK file
