After upgrading to Backup Exec 2012 from a previous version, backup jobs show superseded status and do not run

Problem

Some or all of the backup jobs show superseded status and do not run even though they appear to be scheduled to avoid conflicts.

 

Error Message

No errors are shown, only the backup job status sometimes shows as "superseded.".

Cause

The job definitions may not have migrated properly from the previous version of Backup Exec.

 

Solution

If editing the job definitions fails to resolve the issue, delete them and then configure new backup operations.
