When i was trying to do something like backup, inventoty, import etc, the job just pending there and the job status shows " server pause"at the device staus, everything looks o.k.
To remove the "server paused" simply do the following:
1. Select "Devices" tab in Backup Exec
2. Right-click on the server name and select "Paused" to "un-pause" the server.
Everything should now be back to "normal".
