I have never gotten the title message before, but now it is all I get when I attempt to conduct a full backup operation for a remote server.  The same server completes a differential backup but errors out whenever a full backup is attempted.

The OS on the remote server is Windows Server 2003 SP2.  Just to reiterate, the backup operation for a differential on the server in question completes successfully but the full backup operation fails just a few seconds after it starts.
