This error persists even in the newest versions.

The problem persistet on my system after upgrading to SP4. I have upgraded the remote agents (2 remote system running win 2008r2 and win 2003). my media server is a win 2008 box.

on opening up each system and tape media, the Job view is empty and yellow traingle "Job view failed" is flashing on the left bottom corner. The job schedules seem to be running, however is throwing "unknown" errors and finishing "with exclusion" very quickly. I doubt to have a valid backup of the selected ressources.

do you have any recommondations? If I need to provide further information, please let me know.

Are there any errors/warnings under the event viewer ? Have you tried a repair of the Backup Exec DB using this KB - and then a repair of Backup Exec from Programs & features applet ?

If the repair doesn't help and there aren't any relevant errors, would recommend to log a formal support case as per TECH185878 "this hotfix will prevent the issue only from happening in the future, however, will not fix the existing issue."
