Backup exec tape issue - VSS snapshot error....

Hi,

I run a full tape backup to tape on a daily basis. It's started to fail with the following details  -

V - 79 - 57344 - 34110 - A0F0: Initialization failure on: "\\
\system?state". Advanced Open File Option used : Microsoft Volume Shadow
Copy Service (VSS). VSS Snapshop error. The Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy
Service (VSS) snapshot failed. Make sure that all provider services and
tasks are running. Check the Windows Event Viewer for details.

I have started the VSS service and kicked off the backup, still failed. I unchecked the VSS box in the jobs properties but it failed still.

How do I get my tape backup to work?

Thanks for the advice but my error differs from the one in the linked article. The error message I receive is regarding the system state of a remote DC. Any further advice?
