Hi, I am not an expert but please make sure if the user have not change the rights on that folder. I have done this once .. ticked deny all on administrator rights and after a week IT guys came to (kill) see me.

Hope I inderstood well the problem.

In version 9.1 permissions setup in two places; Im not near my lab but, you may suffer ether an insuficiant permision getting to the agent or you may suffer comm probs somewhere...

I'll be able to reply to you later but in the meanwhile, why dont you use Veritas Diagnostics?

sorry for overlooking , it was missed from my mind to close this issue , may be i was over joyed bcoz my problem was solved by myself :)

actually , the problem was related to space which required by veritas in order to take backup

i followed veritas technote 261831

abd problem solved , u can close this case.
