I have a Widdows 2008 server SP1 x86 that I cannot install the Symantec Backup Exec AOFO option.  It is greyed out.  Even attempted to copy the agent files and install locally.  Still greyed out.

I cannot backup my system state on one of my 2008 servers, and I assumed this was my issue.  I have other 2008 servers that it backs up the system state just fine.

Backup- \\server.domain\System?State \\server.domain\System?StateV-79-57344-65245 - A failure occurred accessing the object list.

I cannot figure out why.  Any input?

Not using Trend Micro.. Using McAfee Virus Scan 8.7.  This server is a print server.  That's it.  Nothing else is running on this server.  It is SP1 and fully patched.  Have uninstalled and reinstalled the remove agent multiple times.  Have attempted to create a seperate job just for this server and it fails every time with the same error when the system state is selected.

I've seen referenced where pre-version 12 Backup Exec needs to be patched for Windows 2008 servers to work but you mention you are already backing up other Windows 2008 servers fine.
