no luck with the first article. I attempted to follow the suggestion on the second article but ran into another issue. When running the wizard for the Advanced Open File Option i get to the point when i enter the server and my credentials and when i hit next a popup appears saying Advanced file open option does not appear to be intsalled properly on the server

For advanced file option you may have to install the license associated with it

One more thing i forgot to mention, when i do a test run on the same backup job i get the following error:

Media CheckOnline media check   : Insufficient online or nearline media is available to start job.Overwrite media check: There is no media online or nearline that can be overwritten or the job has been marked append/terminate.Media check status   : Failed

I have tried all the suggestions on the veritas website with still no luck.
