Duplicate Job failed with "error occurred when attempting to initialize encryption for job"

Created: 26 Oct 2009 • Updated: 31 May 2010 | 3 comments

backupexec 11d rev7170,sp4 with hotfix 62-65 on Windows 2003 sp2 server that (encrypted) backups to a USB hard drive on a nightly basis. Every Friday the plan was to use a duplicate job to copy the last nights backup to a secondary drive for longer retention.
Backup selection list includes file, system state, exchange and sql database.

However we get "Final error: 0xe0000f0c - An error occurred when attempting to initialize encryption for job. Final error category: Job Errors
An error occurred when attempting to initialize encryption for job.
The link refers to http://www.symantec.com/business/support/knowledge...
This talks about GRT, Restores or Netware - none of which apply in this case.

Both the duplicate and the FridayBackup use encryption - I had them using the same encryption key, different keys but get the same error.
I did a test backup of a small selection of files and set up a duplicate job in the same manner as the existing job and this worked fine.

Any ideas on where to troubleshoot? I don't really want to seperate the Friday backups into multiple backups (files, exchange, sql, systemstate) and have these duplicated individually.
