Canceling an active job

You can cancel a job that is in progress. If the job is scheduled, it runs again at the next scheduled time.

It may take several minutes for a job to cancel. While Backup Exec processes the cancellation of a job, the Cancel Pending status appears in the status column.

To cancel an active job

  1. On the navigation bar, click Job Monitor.

  2. On the Job List tab, in the Current Jobs pane, click the active job that you want to cancel.

  3. In the task pane, under Active Job Tasks, click Cancel.

    To select multiple jobs in the Job List view in the Job Monitor, select a job, and then press the <Ctrl> or <Shift> keys while you click other jobs that you want to select. This allows you to perform tasks such as Cancel on more than one job at a time, as long as the jobs are of similar type.

  4. Confirm the cancellation of the job.
