Check status : Error: e000846b, The job failed with the following error: The resource could not be backed up because an error occurred while connecting to the Backup Exec for Windows Servers Remote Agent.

I tried stoping and restarting the serice and even doing a test backup and still fails, any help would be appericated.

I would 1st of all make sure Backup Exec is fully patched. Also make sure that the user account that the Remote Agent service is using is 'local system'. Are there any errors in the Windows Event Logs that appear around the time the backup fails that would give us more info?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Looks to me like a problem on the B2D folder. Is the backup job set to overwrite? If it is set to append and the disk is now full this may happen. Is the device that you are backing up to working properly? Check that this device is properly attached and is accessible.

I would re-install Backup Exec from scratch. Sounds as though there is corruption somewhere in the BE database.
