backup exec 8.5 is currently running on server1(windows server 2000)
It is responsible for backing up all the network folders which are directly attached to that server.
It is also used to backup certain network shared folders

server2(windows server 2003) is our lotus notes server
the files that need to be backed up on this server are on a drive that is a hidden network share.
We are not using any agents to back this up

The backup was working fine until last friday when I updated the servers using the windows automatic updates.
After I did this the backup of all the files on server2 refuses to work

Backup exec is reporting in the log ""Unable to attach to \\server2\shareName$"
All the other backup locations are being backed up

server2s security log is reporting error 529 at the time the backup starts roughly stating that
server cannot connect

Backupexec is running with full admin rights on all its services on server1

I am guessing that this might be a security issue but I'm not sure

All help greatly appreciated
