Backup Exec 12: Backup Fails on WSUS server

We are using a backup to disk environment.  Backup Exec 12 fails with the following error:

Resource name          : \\SBS\Microsoft SQL Server "WSUS"Logon account          : System Logon Account
Encryption used        : None
Error                  : e000848c - Unable to attach to a resource.  Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again.

The drive is of course online, and takes the rest of the backup no problem.  But the backup reports as failed because of the above.

I looked in the selection list, and the only SQL Server instances selected are EPOSERVER and BKUPEXEC.  

MICROSOFT##SEE, SBSMONITORING, and SHAREPOINT are not selected for backup.

We aren't using WSUS (as far as I know) so I considered uninstalling it.  But it warned about breaking other installations if I proceeded so I backed off.  I'd be happy with just excluding it from the backup exec job?

This happens when in some way the list in Backupexec had a reference that is no longer there.
To resolve this problem you could do the following
  1. From the Job Definitions tab, right-click on the backup job which produced the error, and then select Properties
  2. Select the Selections tab
  3. Under Display options, select Text version
  4. Locate and remove all references to the directory/file producing the error
  5. In the Selection list name, select Excludes  
So you're using the selection list. I would advise you to use the Text Mode instead of the GUI mode.
Edit the selection list, and choose Text Mode rather than GIU mode.  
If that doesn't work check the user you're using to backup the databases. Maybe you can try using an account that has more right to the database.

Although the description is incorrect for my version, this really helped!

In the backup job (right clicked from Job Setup on appropriate job) I went to the selections area.  There is no option for "text version" but there is a tab for "view selection details" which had the text entries that I believe you are talking about.

The WSUS was in there on the text side, but not the GUI side.  I removed it, and we'll see what happens with the backup this evening.
