First reboot your server, if its still a problem then perform the backup via command line, see here for more info: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/dce7fece-b866-4836-84f0-369297559e7c/windows-server-backup-the-program-issued-a-command-but-the-command-length-is-incorrect

Be sure to fully patch your server once you've managed to get a full backup working. See if that resolves your problem.

Thanks. To start a backup job through Wbadmin, there should be one Backup schedule created, right? I still get this

when creating a Backup schedule.
No, you can create the whole job via command line. See this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753201.aspx

Thanks a lot.
Here is what I've got in command prompt. Any advice?
C:\Users\Administrator>wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:\\vboxsrv\WIN08SRVBACKUP

Note: The backed up data cannot be securely protected at this destination.
Backups stored on a remote shared folder might be accessible by other
people on the network. You should only save your backups to a location
where you trust the other users who have access to the location or on a
network that has additional security precautions in place.

Retrieving volume information...
No volume has been included for backup.
