Go to those remote servers and make sure the RAWS agent service is started, and then open the RAWS agent itself. Check that it is publishing to your media server.

You can also do a couple of checks like pinging IP address and server name from all servers concerned, and then doing an nslookup to rule out DNS.

If you're trying to back up to a tape drive, then there are very specific points to consider. Read up on the requirements below:

I need some help, I recently started supporting backup exec 10d, There are existing job set up and have been running, however recently the tapes that are changed out daily will nolonger work. As we insert the tape the job shows reading media then ejects the tape. We tried several tapes and all do the same. The jobs are set to overwrite if full. Any ideas on what to do.
