Is Windows Firewall enabled on the 2008 server? if so, have you created a port exception for the Remote Agent? I'd start with disabling the firewall temporarily. If that fixes it, you'll need to find the port number and make an exception.

Estrange now I am getting a different error:

That's a pretty normal error. It means that when the backup job started, it listed out all of the files/folders it was going to back up. But by the time it got to that file/folder, the file/folder had been deleted.

This happens all of the time with log file folders, which generally don't need to be backed up.

This also means that your backup server is now communicating with your remote agent just fine, assuming that the folder in question is on the remote server. Did you make any changes?

Did you make any changes to the firewall config or anything else that might have allowed the agent to start communicating?

I think your original question is resolved. Since you are getting an error about a folder being missing, that indicates agent communication is OK. Now you just have to decide whether to exclude that folder that is going missing, or what.

That's a different issue.

I guess you are right.  Althoug I heven't been able to get a good back up yet.  I don't get the original error. Which I believe went away when I rebooted the back up exec server.

Thanks for the points.

One important thing to remember about Backup Exec is that if one little thing in the "critical" category goes wrong, it marks the whole job as "Failed" - but that is not necessarily true. I don't have the entire log file so  I can't say for sure, but it sounds to me as if that backup was perfectly fine except that one file/folder was missing when the backup software got there to back it up. That file/folder was most likely deleted as a normal function of whatever software is was part of.

The job got marked as "Failed", but you'd be able to do a perfectly good full restore from it because that file/folder was superfluous. There is a good chance that without you making any changes, the next backup will be successful because that scenario won't happen next time. Or maybe it will, but that still won't be anything to worry about - just an annoyance to clean up.

This happens all of the time. You will learn to determine what is an annoyance and what is important, and to exclude the "annoyances" from the backup so that the big red scary "Failed" bar does not appear in your logs.
