very strange problem with Data Protector Express 3.50 Sp2

Hello,

I’ve setup a custom scheduled job (Friday – full, Monday – Thursday diff.). The job was running fine on Friday, Monday and Tuesday but after a power cut on Wednesday My scheduled Job was gone and only the “Backup Local Machine” (default job)
was left. So I thought it happened because of the unexpected shutdown of the server and I recreated my Job (ServerBackup) and restored all the catalogs from the tapes. Everything seemed to work fine until I had to restart the server after a system update.

It was a planned normal restart and my Job disappeared again.

Has anyone an idea what’s wrong?

Thank you


Oliver
