clearing stuck netbackup restore procs

Ok... NetBackup problems...

So you have restore procs stuck on your NetBackup huh? here is what worked with me:

1) close all admin consoles

2) shudown netbackup

3) bpps -x to see if all things are actually dead (if not use bp.kill_all)

4) shutdown netbackup on your media servers and check for procs as above

5) restart your PBX exchange daemon on all systems (master/media)

6) go to /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/<username>/jobs and
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops/<username>/logs and delete all contents

7) restart the netbackup services on media / master servers

8) have a beer and enjoy your restores running :)

Thanks for playing :)
