BE 12.5 takes 6 hours to start backup job

We have a scheduled backup job that is scheduled to start at 12:01 am.  We've had to expand the window so that it completes, because it will not start the job any earlier than 6 am.  We've removed all pre-jobs and it still does it.  I've run out of ideas on how to fix this.  has any one else ran into it, or know of a fix for it?

Turns out one of the administrators had turned on time access, so the back up user was not allowed to log in to the server until 6 am so it would have never started before 6 am because it could not login.  Changed that and it runs fine.

Hi Shane,

What changed to make it run this long?

What happens if you create another scheduled job and start it at 12:01AM? Have you maybe removed any servers from the LAN, but not the selection list (although that would just give you an error).

Laters!
