Scheduled Jobs Missed - On Hold, not rescheduling

Created: 13 Dec 2013 • Updated: 13 Dec 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all - so my services hung the other day and I had a bunch of jobs "missed".  Now, those jobs are showing "on hold" and only one of my jobs is showing "scheduled" and has been running.  I don't want to "unhold" the jobs because I will be running the jobs from 12/6-12/9.  Instead, I'd like to move them out of the way and have Backup Exec reschedule the ordinary jobs to continue the ordinary process.  I attached a screenshot so you can see.  I can "delete" the job out of the Current Jobs area of Job Monitor but I am not sure if that deletes that instance of the job or the job itself entirely.  Can anyone assist?  I want to get my jobs scheduled on track as usual.

Please see attached screen shot!

The only way to get the jobs rescheduled again as per the schedule is to take it off hold and cancel the job. If you are worried about it writing data to something it shouldn't then put the targeted storage offline and proceed.

Edit: Backup Exec would not put the jobs on hold automatically. Someone must have put them on hold.

I don't think anyone put them on hold, they just went on hold because the services weren't running and "missed"

That said - I was able to "run now" and hit cancel while they were "initializing".  They cancelled, and then rescheduled themselves for today/etc.  Thanks!
