All users on our network can backup to Time Machine, however one user receives the following error:

The backup disk image “/volumes/data/username iMac.sparsebundle” could not be accessed (error 111).

The user is running Lion and connects to TM via the Ethernet network.

This error indicates the sparse bundle file is corrupted.  You can try holding the Alt/Option key while selecting the Time Machine icon and then select "Verify Backups".  If that does not work you can try to repair the file with the Disk Utility App.  Last resort, would be to move that file and let Time Machine start fresh building a new file.  You would lose the historical backup data in the old file but it should resolve the errors.
