@pkh and sym-cr@zy: thanks for your replies.

Deleted all jobs. Created a new one. In this backupjob I deselected the WMI partition and Systemstate.

More important is the data. This machine is an domaincontroller so Ad is allready being backup'ed on another machine.

But this is still a workaround. I hope Symantec will solve the problem with BE 2012 and WMI. There's stil no solution.
