System Writer is missing from Windows Server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have four WIndows Servers 2008. Two are Enterprise version and two are Standard. Enterprise Ed servers running Failover cluster with SQL 2008 instance on both of them. Another two Standard Ed server will run NLB and Sharepoint.

Enterprise Ed servers missing System Writer, which causes Symantec Backup Exec not being able to back them up. I get event 513 - CAPI 2 in the event viewer.

How can I solve this problem? I followed online recomendation for checking permissions on Registration folder under Windows. Everything checks out.
