I am recieving the following errors using Veritas/Symantec Backup Exec 10d on a Windows 2003 Server machine.

This is for a complete disk backup across 5 servers.

Each server has the correct agents installed.

Did it ever work?

it seems as if the advenced open file option is set to VSS and the VSS is not installed or not running.

If  you change the Advanced open file option to something else like "veritas snapshot  provider" and see what happends.

let me know

I disabled the offhost backup options in veritas to fix this.
