I have Hyper-V 2008 R2 as a host, installed SBS 2008 SP1 on it, installed BE 2010 for SBS, installed remote agent on the Hyper-V host however got error --532459699 although Hyper-V event log says installation was successful, enabled Hyper-V option in BE and joined to the SBS domain, added domain user as local admin on the Hyper-V host. When I try to to create a backup job and select VMs from the Hyper-V host none of the logon accounts work, I tried all possible combination. I get Failed to Logon to Hyper-V, the directory or file was not found or could not be accessed. Is my configuration even supported?

Unless you have a separate domain controller not hosted on your hyper-v host, joining the hyper-v host to the domain rarely works out well. The problem is that the host needs to boot before it can start any guests, and the guest is the SBS server (and domain controller) that provides authentication for the domain, which invariably some of the services on the host are using...not to mention the fact that the host will try to contact a DC to update group policies, etc.
In short, if you don't have another DC and global catalog in your network, I'm not surprised you are having issues, and BE is the least of those...

not a good news, I guess I could use built-in Windows Backup but I have an external NAS that I need to store images of the VMs but I know that it can't do incremental backups to a NAS, only DAS which in this case is not an option for me as I need to take those offsite

any other suggestions?

Well VM backups are never incremental anyways by the nature of how they are backed up. So you could use a blended solution.

Use backupexec for full and incremental backups within the guest os, allowing you to back up to the nas. Use windows backup on the host OS to back up the vm images.
