Killing a Job in the Job Controller

Users can manually terminate jobs from the Job Controller.

For information about killing jobs from the Job Controller, see Killing Jobs.

  2. Right-click the job and click Kill.

For agents that support committing backup jobs when the backup job is killed, the following actions occur:

  • In the Job Controller window, the job status changes to Completed with errors.

  • In the Backup History window, the job status is Committed.

  • Uncommitted files are marked as Failed and are included in the next incremental backup job.

For all other agents and all other jobs, the job status changes to Killed.
