Just to give you an idea as to what is running on this server, there is SQL w/ SP3 and imaging server software by ImageSoft.  We have verified it is not the NIC (yes it is backing up over the network) and all servers are being backed up in the same manner.  Any help would be great..I am at a loss.

HI,

I would suggest to carry out a defrag on the server.

Some of the files are open files. Are you running open file agent on the this server?

:)

I ran the defrag and only on of the drives needed it.  I am not quite sure what open file agent is, I looked and did not see it in services.

I appreciate all of your help, however, I found a solution the problem.  HP/Compaq has uses insight manager which was running an array of services causing the back-up to fail.  After uninstalling and/or removing the services for back-up purposes, Back-up Exec was successfully able to back-up the entire server without errors.  

As for RPlakas solution - This would only make the errors not display as failed, but the problem would still be present - an unhealthy back-up.  Thanks nevertheless.
