In a previous post about a month back, I was having a problem with backup exec 12.5 and the services. If i logged into the server during the day and opend backup exec, then the scheduled job would run that night, but if I didn't log in and open up backup exec, the job wouldn't run. Someone from here had requested the I uninstall/re-install the .NETframework. Since my last post, I have un/re the .NETframework and to no avail, still have the same exact problem. The scheduled job may or may not run and if you don't log-in to backup exec then your pretty much guaranteed that the job will not run that day. If I have the program open from a previous day, and try to manually run a job, it then tells me that the services has been stopped and gives me the option to restart them, by doing so will allow me to run the scheduled backup. This is an EVERYDAY thing and the customer is really on my case about it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
