OK I have one remote server that I need to enable the AOFO agent on. I do not want it on my exchange or oracle server and I know that this will cause problems.
The only server is a server that hosts Quick books and Backup exec can not seem to grab that file I am thinkin it is that it needs the AOFO
all server are 2003 by the way

Create a backup job for the server where you want to use AOFO ( quick books ). In the job properties on the left side select Advanced Open file option and then enable the option to use AOFO .
You can use the VSS on the W2K3 servers and do not need to install and additional snapshot providers.

Did you install the Advanced Open File Option when you installed the Backup Exec client on that server which you want to use it?

You don't need the AOFO client on a Windows 2003 server as iamthecreator already pointed out.
Just follow the instructions in his post and you've done all you need in Backup Exec.

If there are still problems, you may have to look at the event viewer on the remote client for VSS errors.
