Inconsistent Final error: 0xe000848c - Unable to attach to a resource.

I’m new to the forum and I would say I’m a novice or a step up from Novice with Backup Exec...
For the past several months I’ve been experiencing an inconsistent error with one of my remote backup machines. The dreaded "Unable to attach to a resource." I’ll go several days with successful backups and then I get this error. Sometimes I’ll have several days in a row with this failure.
I’m really at a loss on what to do or try next. I’m not even sure whether it’s a backup issue or a Windows issue.

Backup Exec Info

-Installed Updates: Service Pack 5
Remote Backup Machine Info with error:
-Machine is a Virtual Machine on a Windows Virtual Server environment.
-OS: Windows Sever 2000, SP4 w/ Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP 4 (KB891861)
-Machine is used to host an External Website.
-Machine is NOT: A mail server, using SQL (*it is installed, but no Databases are running),
What’s NOT happening on the remote machine during backup:
-Changes in login privileges (*I have Admin rights, and connect with BE with the same rights).
I’ve tried several things to address the problem and still now change:
-Installed updates to Backup Exec (and updated remote agents).
-Installed Windows 2000 Server SP4 Rollup on Remote machine that has issue. Read where it was thought that Windows Authentication was the culprit. Backups ran without issue for a week after running this, but this could just be fluke. Event details:
Description: Security policies are propagated with warning. 0x4b8: An extended error has occurred.
Any advice would be great!
