Backup Exec Job Cancellation: The job was canceled by user – KB10391026


Description:  Received a Backup Cancellation alert that the backup job was cancelled by user _____    — Job was taking longer than normal

Common customer description:

My Backups have been failing
I received a backup cancel email

Probing questions:

Was there anyone working on the server?
Was anyone at the customer’s location working on it internally?

Steps to isolate:

Check previous tickets
Check Backup Job Log

Steps to resolve:

1. Determine if they have Backup Monitoring (This should always be the first step)

  • Backup Monitoring = Not billable
  • No Backup Monitoring = Billable (need approval first)

2. Check previous tickets to see if any helpdesk, onsite technicians, Tier 2 techs, or Tier 3 is currently working on any issues

3. If you can’t find anything, normally these generally come from the customer cancelling the job because the backup job was taking too long than it normally would

  • Check the backup Job Log to make sure

4. Make a note of that in the ticket and let the job run on it’s normal schedule

5. Monitor the backups for about a week. We want to make sure that the backups can consistently run successfully and/or complete with exceptions (exceptions can be for many reasons) during that week. If the backups fail within that week period, work on the backups again and continue to monitor the backups for another week (again we need to have a week of consistent successful backups)

6. If the backups completed successful for a week, you can close the ticket (If you had to bill them, put the ticket to “To Be Billed” instead of closed)

Additional considerations: If this is a repeated issue, consult with a Tier 2 tech or call Symantec at 1-888-780-7962 (Press 2 then Press 1)
