System writer 'system writer' not found on Windows 2008 R2 server using TSM-backup product

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi, I have some problems with my servers when i try to backup them. I am using TSM client The backup fail due to the system writer "System Writer" is not found. I have restarted the server and it does not help.

And i can't find anything on Google/Expert Exchange about just this problem. I have found some articles that are kinda close but that then it's WMI-writers and that writer i know how to get back but i can't get back my system-writer.

Does anyone have a clue on what i can try? My systems are physical and virtual machines all running Windows 2008 R2 standard or enterprise. I have not applied SP1 on those servers yet.
