I am currently running Backup 12.0 Rev 1364. I have SP5 applied. I  have pushed the agent out to the servers using the backup account we created. This account has domain admin privileges. When I go to setup the backup job, I get access denied when trying to make my selections,

I have tried the following:

Uninstalled/Reinstalled the agent
Rebooted the server
Started the agent service with the account that I use to perform backups
Performed install from RAWS32 directory
Ran setupaa.cmd
Tried other domain accounts

Read through almost every related question o Experts Exchange.

Anyone have any further ideas or suggestions?

Login with the account used to do the backup, that has always worked for me.  More specifically, use the account in which the backupexec service runs with, as long it is a Domain Account and not a local account.

Will not work in my situation. The backup server is in a separate domain and backs up multiple other servers in several domains.
