I am afraid the text in your screenshot is too tiny to make out.  Do cut and paste the error messages.

...have you verified that the RAWS agent is started and publishing correctly to the media service? haveyou checked to make sure that any AV installed isn't blocking the agent from communicating?

Hello there,
    You may want to refer to the following technotes  : Admin Console reports Exception has been thrown by a target of an invocation and closes  : Upgrade or installation of Backup Exec fails with error : "The install failed with an unexpected error:Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."  : Error "The installer failed with an unexpected error: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation" while attempting to install the Remote Agent

If the issue does not resolve with solution of any technote above then I would request you to open a Support case with Symantec. As the console is crashing this will require thorough troubleshooting.


Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!
