Can't find Automatic Scheduled BACKUP_DB

Dear friends,
I'v a TSM 5.5 installation where some processes execute without being scheduled.

For example: Every day (09:00AM) the system starts a BACKUP_DB and an EXPIRE INVENTORY. Altough there's nothing scheduled on the system (at least as far as I know):

* Messages from ACTLOG:
ANR2750I Starting scheduled command BACKUP_DB ( backup db dev=lto3 type=full scratch=yes )
ANR2017I Administrator ADMIN issued command: BACKUP DB dev=lto3 type=full scratch=yes
NR0984I Process 24 for DATABASE BACKUP started in the BACKGROUND at 09:01:00
NR2750I Starting scheduled command EXPIRATION ( expire inventory ).
ANR2017I Administrator ADMIN issued command: EXPIRE INVENTORY
ANR0984I Process 29 for EXPIRE INVENTORY started in the BACKGROUND at 10:00:05.

* Scheduled activities:
ANR2034E QUERY SCHEDULE: No match found using this criteria.
ANS8001I Return code 11.

As You can see, I don't have anything scheduled but this ghosts are around.
I'v checked crontab too, and there's nothing related.

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance

run a "q sched type=admin"

The backup DB and expiration tasks will be running as administrative schedules rather than client. "q sched" by itself only displays client (backup/archive) schedules.
