Backup is failing after we had a tech out to apply SP1 and try to correct an issue in the event log.

Backup- \\server12.brush.brushresearch.com\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group

It's a permissions issue - check what permissions the backup exec is using, and allow full access on the exchange information store to that user - normally domain admin; in the job, test the credentials, and change as appropriate;
You may have to reinstall BE and recreate the job if all else fails, although I wouldn't have thought so - setting the correct credentials should resolve this.

This is running through a remote agent.  I tried setting the back up remote service to administrator on the remote server for testing but no good when it trys to actually back up.  When i run a test back up its successfull no errors.  When i test credentials on job set up its successful and says it will use servers credentials.

Actually I beleive it is because the administrator account became hidden in the global address book.  I unhid it and ran a small test back up and it worked.  So we will see tonight if it works or not.

Yep Worked as planned.  So if you see those errors you want to make sure whatever account your using to back up is shown in the global address bood
