Backup [name] is already in use. How to delete a stale/hung backup job from VSC 2.0?

A backup job was hung at 89%.  We ended up rebooting the machine and now we cannot run the job at all, nor can we edit the job.

How do I clear this out?

Thanks!

I ran into this issue when snapmirror update was selected within the job and the relationship was broken. Repaired the relationship, resumed the snapmirror and the job exited with success.

Good catch!  I just checked our Snapvault and sure enough, a target volume is missing.  I'll get that fixed tomorrow.

In the meantime, I would still like to be able to edit and run the backup again.  Anyone else know how to kill the job?

You could create a duplicate job w/o the snap update.
