BackupExec 2012 - SBS hyper-v backup

Created: 03 Oct 2012 • Updated: 03 Oct 2012 | 2 comments

Hi,  Having sudden backup failures with the following.

 

Final error: 0xe00084f9 - A communications failure has occurred between the Backup Exec job engine and the Agent for Windows.

Final error category: Resource Errors

 
V-79-57344-33928 - Unable to complete the operation.  The Active Directory, Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) or Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) database was not found.
 
 
I test the resources and all come back as success.  The above error has happened before but restarting the Agent service appeared to resolve the problem, this now makes no difference.
 
BE 2012 SBE is installed on Server 2008 R2 Standard with SBS 2011 running as a VM (hyper-v) also a remote desktop server is running as a VM.
 
The BE agent is installed on the SBS.
 
Any Ideas?
 
Thanks
Alex

If you check the event logs on both the host server and virtual server, is the beremote process terminating unexpectedly (crashing) during the backup?

No processes terminating.  The rest of the back appears to work, just get the mentioned failure.

All service packs and hot fixes are installed.
