Netbackup jobs that won’t go away..

Occasionally, you get a job in the queue that you can’t cancel/delete through the GUI nor through command line…   Here is the solution to that..

• Note the JobID from bpdbjobs
• Stop Netbackup with bp.kill_all
• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpjobd –r {JobID}
• Restart Netbackup with /etc/init.d/netbackup start

The following thread discusses different attempts at solving th this issue, with this process being the final solution.
