Backup Exec 9.1 - Unable to attach to one of the drives

I'm trying to use Backup Exec 9.1 and its SQL redirection feature to move my databases from the old server to the new one.  The error I get is:

Completed status: Failed
Final error: 0xa000848c - Unable to attach to one of the drives.

I've already checked out veritas.com for help, especially http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/266177.htm

I'm an admin on both servers, so it's not a permissions issue.  The new server (Windows Server 2003) has the same version of BE installed on it and the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Servers service is running.

*OLD Server Specs:*
Windows 2000 SP 4
SQL 2000
Backup Exec 9.1

*NEW Server Specs:*
Windows Server 2003
SQL 2005 (default - not named instance)
Backup Exec 9.1
Services Running: MSSQL$BKUPEXEC, SQL Server Agent, Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Servers, Backup Exec Agent Browser, Backup Exec Job Engine

BE 9.1 doesn't backup SQL 2005, you have to upgrade to 10d or downgrade SQL to 2000.
