We have been doing lot of Testing for last 1 month and I wanted to discuss issue with Restore job which will not get cancel and would stuck for long time
I am using NBU 6.5
when trying to cancel Restore job it will stay there for ever
I have tried bpdbjobs -cancel jobid -No luck
If it Restart all NBU Service it will cancel restore job however i don't want to do that as it will also cancel my active jobs.
Is there any other suggested like killing any specific Restore process on Master Server can terminate REstore.
I have Restart NBU Client Services on target Restore server as with no luck.
When canceling a job, sometimes it will not cancel until it finishes a 'step' it is in.
If it was in the process of writing a file to disk, when it finish with that file it will cancel - this can be quick.
if it is in the process of forwarding through a tape looking for the image, it might not cancel until it finds that image, then before it starts the next step it would cancel. ( I have seen some stop quickly and some take a while).

Are yo trying to do a BMR restore? Is it this BMR restore that's hanging?
