Veeam BR 8 with Patch 1 installed.

Code: Select all
Get-VBRTapeJob | ? {$_.GetLastState() -like "WaitingTape"} | Stop-VBRJob

Still does not working..

Code: Select all
Get-VBRTapeJob : Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: name
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-VBRTapeJob | ? {$_.GetLastState() -like "WaitingTape"} | Stop-VBRJob
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-VBRTapeJob], ArgumentNullException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.ArgumentNullException,Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.Cmdlets.GetVBRTapeJob

Does anybody know how to Stop WaitingTape Jobs with Script?

Code: Select all
Get-VBRTapeJob | Where-Object {$_.LastState -like "WaitingTape"} | Stop-VBRJob

Seems like the pipeline is not returning anything (meaning no job is waiting). A safer way is to handle this whit foreach. Btw in v9 there seems to be no such function but there seems to be a field called "LastState"
Code: Select all
Get-VBRTapeJob | ? {$_.LastState -like "WaitingTape"} | % { $_ | Stop-VBRJob }

It's never too late to write a script. :)

And the one proposed by you should work fine, indeed, since starting from version 8 LastState is a static property, not a dynamic method, as it used to be previously.
