I'm having a bit of difficulty getting Backup Exec 12 to run on a specific backup job. It appears that the problem is due to logon credentials, although I'm not sure why or how. The error keeps stating "Access is denied to Remote Agent". However, I'm fairly certain that I'm not using the Remote Agent. This is an SBS2003 Server running Exchange 2003 and Sharepoint Services 2.0. The backup job in question is a basic tape job that pretty much backs everything up. My test-runs work fine. The error is only produced upon actually attempting the backup job for real. If I go into the "Resource Credentials" tab for the backup job and do the credentials test, each resource passes the test except for the highest level resource (The server level), which returns the error "Communications Error". Stangely enough, if I log onto the same server remotely using RDP with the same exact credentials, the tests all pass the credentials test. This has me baffled.
