Backup Exec 12 reports AOFO: Initialization failure ..... "Out of Memory"

Hi,
I am running Backup Exec 12 on my media server (window server 2003 SP2 with latest updates).  I am using the Advanced Open File option.  When backing up my Exchange 2007 server, I get

AOFO: Initialization failure on: "\\exchange2007.city.castlegar.bc.ca\C:". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
Snapshot provider reports "Out of memory".

I called Veritas support and they said to apply the fixes described in  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;887827 .  They said to apply the fix to my media server, not my Exchange server.  I have a couple of questions.

1.  Should I be applying this fix to both my media and exchange servers?
2.  I have subsequently reviewed many articles from Microsoft related to this problem all with a link to a different patch, hotfix, rollup, etc.  Is there not a single, downloadable file that cumulates all of the latest and greatest VSS patches/hotfixes?  

If there is something else that I need to know to resolve this issue, any information would be appreciated.

Thank you and much appreciated

In the old times to solve this problem, at list temporally was to defragging the volume you were backing up.
This could help a lot.

I applied the following rollups and hotfixes to address VSS errors.  I'll see if backups run successfully this weekend.
