If you are not on SP2 and the latest hotfixes, run LU a couple of times until it says no more updates.  After that, push out the remote agents again.

Also, see these documents

The SP2 is already updated.

I have disabled the netdma in the backup exec media server and restarted the backup. but the backup is failing with the same issue.
