I am getting an additional two reports of a job being missed every second or so. I am up to nearly 350,000 jobs in the job history making it impossible to see what has been missed and what completed successfully.
Kurtis, This is an issue that is being worked on as we speak. It was caused by an anomoly in hotfix 10 and is triggered by a job being missed. In some cases cycling the Backup Exec services causes it to stop showing these missed jobs. A hotfix is pending for this issue, and should be release within a few days. Keep an eye out for aLiveupdate notification. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks, Daniel
Thanks for the reply. I performed a live update this morning and rebooted, and it seems to have stopped the increasing number of jobs. Is there an easy way to delete all of these jobs to speed things up? I am limited to deleting 2500 jobs at a time manually or 5000 if running the database maintenance.
Not sure, 'thanks anyway' is really appropriate when he has to spend the next 2 hours MANUALLY deleting jobs.
I recently had to do it with 100,000 jobs, and had I reported it, I would be expecting an exact and quick way of deleting ALL of them in one hit. The second Symantec were made aware of this, someone should have made a hack to save us time.
My recommendation to Symantec is to write a quick SQL Query and command to delete all "missed" jobs in one single command and distribute as a download to customers. I'm quite sure any decent DBA can work that majic quickly.
"me too" post. can only remove 2500 logs at a time. restarting services didn't help- had to edit schedules of jobs (set so that jobs have no future scheduled run time) and this stopped it. Once I cleared the 100,000+ logs, I then re-edited the schedules. the fun never ends.
