Tape or disk?

The solution points towards a tape driver issues if you are using tape.

Perform a basic connectivity check from the Backup Exec server to the failing remote computer.  Use PING and browse file shares if available.  Do the same from the remote computer to the Backup Exec server.

With Backup Exec, there are a few basic troubleshooting/resolution steps that often resolve remote agent issues.

Restart the agent on the remote computer.
Reinstall the agent on the remote computer.
Reboot the Backup Exec server.
Reboot the remote computer.

That would indicate that you are trying to backup a remote server and it could not contact it. Have you checked the firewall and verified that it is either off or has the appropriate ports opened?

Which server are you backing up? Does it contains any Database? SQL, Exchange?

What is the about of RAM in it? Is this VM or Physical Server?
What is the size of the HDD? IF there are multiple HDD then what is free size on each?

Are there enough resources on the server at the time of the backup?
