Veritas backup to disk device problem

I have a 500GB external drive connected to one server.  I'm trying to configure a backup from a different server to backup to that drive.  I set up the Backup to Disk Device in Veritas Backup Exec 9.1.  It sees the drive fine, but the job runs about 15 minutes then comes back with 0x40 - The specified network name is no longer available.  But it is still available?
I look at the application log and see this:

An error occurred while processing a B2D command.
 Changer: LockAndRefreshChangerConfig() Unable to Lock Changer.cfg (\\server\backup job\VERITAS\B2D\Changer.cfg).  Error=64

Any help is much appreciated!!  This is somewhat urgent as our regular tape backup broke and waiting for a new one to come in.

Thank you in advance!

I've seen this before. Try creating new B2D folders but make them removable.  Veritas can't track drive connections on external media all the time.

Let me know the results.
