Backup was failing on and off but there was always something in the log to show why (corrupt file ect...)  now it has been failing for days with the log as follow at bottom, tapes are switched everyday and I have run a new cleaning tape several times and ran a full erase on 2 of the tapes before the backup started the client wants this taken care asap
tried it with retention on and off with same result, I have stopped and restarted the services, there is one file in the log it says is not accessable but it skips it so I don't that being the issue.  
os is 2000 sbs

I don't understand your problem. You have answered your own question haven't you (am I missing something?)

You have a file that has higher permissions than your backup agent can read so it skips the file. This is a registered fail isn't it?
You also have a number of file in use failures. These all add up to a failed full backup.

For the permissions issue, either you need to take ownership and reapply permissions, or exclude this file. This should resolve your failure state on completion.

the backup exec user is a domain admin, schema admin, administrators, backup operator, exchange admin, enterprise admin. and if it is skipping those files should it end with a state of completed with exceptions and not a fail status?

Have the Backups ever been successful? If so what has changed?

Here is what I see...

For: Backup set #3 on storage media #1
You would need the Open File Option to backup files in use.

For: Backup set #4 on storage media #1
You are trying to backup the Information Store at the file level rather then as a database. You need the Exchange Agent for this.

yes backups have been successful about a week ago and nothing has changed, on backup set 4 how would I change that in the options on the exchange tab there are not many differnet ways to set it.

1) I believe BackupExec says in the Documentation to exclude the EXCHSERV folder

2) You should backup the Exchange DB, not the individual boxes in the "Exchange Mailboxes" folder on your selection screen.

A corrupt mail added to a single user mailbox can cause your backup to fail if you do it brick-level.

Certain errors will give you a "failed" status and some will give you a complete..with exceptions comment.  If I remember correctly (I had the same problem a year ago), I think AdamRobinson is on the right track.... if had something to do with the way I was backing up the exchange server,  and after a fair amount of research,  I found the correct way of doing the backup.

The "correct" way is to back up the "Microsoft Information Store."  If you are backing that up, and backing up your "Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes" or "Microsoft Exchange Public Folders," you are duplicating that portion of the backup, and virtually guaranteeing your backups will start failing eventually.

Please not, this way of backing up -- though repeatedly suggested on the Veritas forums -- is a full DB backup, not a brick-level mailbox-by-mailbox backup.  In other words, you may need to re-install the entire mailbox structure for the domain (which takes more time physically), instead of just restoring one user mailbox.  

On the other hand, it takes far less time than realizing your backups are bad because of a few stupid e-mails.
