Backup exec agent not seeing VMFS volume on ESX server

I installed backup exec agent on ESX server but it's not seeing the VMFS volume.  I followed the following procedure

"export /vmfs/vmhba0:0:0:8 as local password vmware"

after reconfiguring the agent.cfg file with that command, and I made sure to check my vmhba path and it was correct, for me it's listed under 0:0:0:1.  After I try to start the agent.be I keep getting "unable to access exported directory'

anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong??
