Thanks in advance for your post.

I can't find the Backup Exec service account (BESA) and in result of that I can't add it to the local administrators group on the media server.

I'm stucked here at this error and cant test the BE on my organization.

Any help would be very apreciated.

I reinstalled the BackupExec 2012 and LiveUpdated it.

I still can't create a Deduplication Disk Storage so I created a simple disk storage and configured some simple Windows Server backups.

But those backups result in errors and dont complete. I attach the result xml file on this post, so if anyone coud vew it and give a help on this would be very appreciated.
