Symantec Backup Exec 11D and 12.0 issues

Hello,

I am having some issues with three of my clients servers running Symantec Backup Exec. One server is 11D and the other two are version 12. They are simply SBS domain servers backing up their application data, public folders, etc.

The job is backing up all of the files and folders but when it gets to the very end of the job, it fails with the following error:

e0008821 - Job was recovered as a result of Backup Exec RPC service starting.  No user action is required. For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-34849.

We have ensured the servers are fully patched with Windows and Backup Exec updates.

So far in troubleshooting the issue we have:
Installed Backup Exec updates
Re-selected the selection list
Restarted the Backup Exec services
Reset the DCOM permissions (as directed by Symantecs website)

Here is information about each of the servers:

We are using the DAT72 tapes with a capacity of around 45 GB. Our jobs are only between 30-35 GB so that doesn't seem to be the problem.

The one thing I am noticing is if I reboot the server, the backup job will run once successfully. After that one successful backup, it goes back to the failure from the RPC service not starting.

PLEASE HELP! We have since replaced the SCSI card, the tape drive, reinstalled Backup Exec, and created a new backup job. NOTHING SEEMS TO HELP!
