ARCserve error W12612 MSDE Writer and BITS Writer

I am using Bristor ARCserv 11.5 SP4 Server and Clients to backup serveral servers to TAPE (I know...Archaic solution.)

The job is ending up incomplete with the following warnings

W12612 The number of compnents selected for backing up (\\Servername\BITS Writer) is zero.  Skip backup

W12612 The number of compnents selected for backing up (\\Servername\MSDR Writer) is zero.  Skip backup

I have selected the whole servers for backup, and installed the VSS client on the servers. I was also receiving this error when the VSS was not selected.

1. DO I need to be concerned about theses errors, orcan I ignore them?
2.  Is there a way to rid myself of these errors without deselecting the full server in the backup.

I have attached a screenshot of the log.

I have not been able to figure this out....input would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

These are simple writer warnings which you need not be concerned about. If you did really intend to back them up then ensure that your BITS and MSDE writer is in an optimal state. Nevertheless these errors do not cause data loss or any information compromise.
