Please always give all relevant info:

Type of backup
Client OS 
NBU version (and patch level) on client

I agree with revaroo - why is that directory in netbackup folder?
I have never seen this on any NBU client or server.

Please create bpbkar log folder in /usr/openv/netbackup/logs to see what is happening on the client.

Thanks for the TN revaroo - I have never seen this error...

Yuvi, if the link takes you to the Support landing page, just try again. 
This is a 'known issue' with Symantec TechNotes. (I also had to try twice.)

Finally got the technote with the below link

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH34898 

and excluded the directory in the client and the backup is running fine.

excluded follows with policy name makes backup success.
