How to stop BE Agent continuosly trying to install to a vm that has not existed for months

Level 2

BE Agent is trying to install to a vm that is no longer in use. This has been happening every day for 4 months. How do I cancel this? I have checked all of the esxi hosts as well as the Backup and Restore tab and do not see this vm.

Running BE 20.6, vmware 6.5

Final error: 0xe00086ce - Backup Exec cannot connect to the remote computer.  Ensure that the remote computer is available, that Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is enabled, and that File and Printer Sharing and WMI are not blocked by a firewall.

Final error category: Job Errors
Completed status: Failed

You may check "Job Monitor --> Job histories" and look for the failed install job. Right click on this job and click on 'Edit Backup', either change schedule to 'create without a schedule' or delete the jobs.

Thanks and Regards,


Located failed job from the Job Monitor. Right Clicked and the edit backup job is greyed out.
