Error while backing up Virtual Domain Controller

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am currently using Backup Exec 2010 r3 to backup a 2003 domain controller and I am receiving the following error:

V-79-57344-65097 - Error. Cannot backup directory \zzzVirtApp000zzz and its subdirectories.

I disabled both Active Directory GRT and vmWare GRT but am still receiving the same message.

Is there a fix or workaround?

Also make sure that you are on BE 2010 R3 SP2 and have applied the latest hotfixes after SP2.  You would need to run LiveUpdate a couple of times.

I am on BE 2010 R3 SP2 and have installed all of the hotfixes.  The error message is present in the logs again this morning.  Any other thoughts?

Also I disabled Active Directory GRT and vmWare GRT and the error message continued to present itself.

Check that you have the hotfix mentioned in the document below

I contacted Symantec Support and they stated the service pack I installed contained the hotfix. Their solution was to create a seperate backup job that takes place immediately after the main job and disable GRT. It is a work around but the problem is resolved.
