Scheduled Jobs not starting after catalogue recovery

Recently my Netbackup master/media server crashed, forcing me to rebuild the server, OS and all.  After installing NB, I was able to recover my catalogue using the standard method explained in the email generated by the catalog backups.  It worked like a charm.  The only oddity I have found is, scheduled jobs are not starting.  If I run them manually, they work and if I adjust their schedule, they will fire off automatically.

My question, is this normal for a catalogue recover?  Will I need to "touch" each policy schedule to get them back on schedule?

You never mentioned your NBU

You never mentioned your NBU version?

'Older' versions of NBU was notorious for nbpem 'misbehaving'...

Try 'nbpemreq -updatepolicies' followed by  'nbpemreq -predict_all -date <mm/dd/yyyy HH:MMSmiley FrustratedS> ' to see what the scheduler predicts.

Go into effect at:

Check the policy's  - there is a "Active. Go into effect at:" option. If the time is in the future the backup will not fire off automatic.

Change the date to a time in the past and check mark "Active".
