Job disabled by Backup & Replication Administrator

Veeam Logoby jeff.richeson » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:29 am

I made the mistake of trying to centrally manage my current Veeam Agents for Windows by using the newly release B&R update 3. I am using the free agents so the central management won't work. I tried to back out all the changes and tried to uninstall and reinstalling the agent but something on the repository still remembers the machine. It won't let me backup this machine any more. How do I get the agent working again?

Could you provide some details on migration that you've done and on how you've tried to revert everything back? Thanks.

Here are the steps that I went through:
* I had a working agent that backed up to an existing repository
* After upgrading to B&Ru3, I deployed an updated, centrally managed agent.
* I got a license error trying to run the job and I could not longer manage the agent remotely
* I tried to change the agent to remote management from the B&R console but also received a license error
* On the remote machine, I tried to uninstall the agent and received a CBT driver error. I rebooted and tried to uninstall and still received the error.
* I finally got it removed by deleting registry keys and program files.
* I installed an older version of agent but it got errors and said that there were no repositories available
* I installed the latest agent and it tells me that the settings are still centrally managed.
* I have deleted everything I can find that deals with these backups on the B&R console but the agent still insists it is being centrally managed

I was just dealing with this same exact issue. While reading through your last post I was poking around the Endpoint Client and on the Settings tab, there was a check in the 'Disable Scheduled Backups' box. Unchecked that and all is well. Not sure why this checked itself...

I had exactly the same issue.
Same cause (Tried managed, then reverted to manual deployed), Job was enabled in B&R console but disabled locally.

Somehow I missed that Checkbox detail on the 3 Agents I had the problem with.
All fixed now. Thanks irwincur.

Hello :)
Same story there: discovered how great are the new central management agent features, but excitement ended soon because of the agent licensing issue (that, compared to socket/VM licensing and maintenance, are not a big deal :| ).
So I removed the protection group and any reference on B&R server, uninstalled the agent and another component from the client, rebooted all and still not working. Unfortunately I used the OU discovery to populate the protecion group and had to uninstall and reinstall many clients because I haven't found how to "release them" from central management. :?

Found that there was both the flag in the client/agent settings, and also found the job disabled on B&R srv. Enabling both of them seem doing the job.

Thanks for your sharing :wink:
