Worth to check PBX , also make sure necessary ports are allowed between master and media server

Error code 811 occurs when there is a pbx communication issue between master and media servers.

Verify if the telnet to 1556 works between Master and Media server and vice versa

If 13724 and 13782 ports are opened on master and media the backup starts however when bptm on media server tries to communicates to nbjm on master server it uses PBX connection hence it uses port 1556.

If 1556 port is blocked on the media server the above connection will not work and the backup job will fail with Exit status 811

On windows 2008 make sure you have opened port 1556 outbound and incoming on the firewall.

If this port is blocked on the media server then the backups will fail with 811
