I have a backup program that uses VSS, I get these errors. The last one is from the scheduler in windows that launches the program. It says bad username or password but the job does run.
I have a client running Windows 2003 The new client was installed fresh vs upgraded.
There are two backup jobs that run from this client each night. One is a fastbit backup of tyhe file system and a second backup job that is an Exchange Server backup.
There are days when the server says there is nothing to backup and I know that isn''t the case.
Other than backups not containing the data I''m expecting I have four items in the event viewer I''m not having any luck coming up with any info on.

While this last event seems self explanatory. I''ve checked the account and password and it''s worth noting that the Account/password errors happen when the back up is taking place.
