Error after creating new backup job

I'm getting the same error as the referenced question.  I paused the old backup job (an old NAS device).  Then, created a new backup job (new NAS device).  For the first week, (before I rebooted the server) it was working properly.  Now, I'm getting this error saying that I do not have a licence on the remote computer (however, the remote computer is a NAS device, so I'm not sure how I could install that there).

Could it not be allowing me to do the backup because the old backup job is still present?

You may need to tweak the settings on the new NAS device. Is it using a Windows OS or is it emulating it? If it's using a Windows OS then it most likely needs an agent.

"I. NAS Devices using Windows 2003 and Windows 2003 Operating Systems
 
The NAS devices in this instance are seen as remote Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 Servers. Therefore a Remote Agent for Windows Server (RAWS) and RAWS license will be required to back it up"

Must have worked initially as a trial of sorts :(

I'll follow up with Symantec as we have a support contract.  TY
