Have you installed SP4 on the Media Server. If so browse to \Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Agents\RAWS32 folder and delete all files older than raws322213rsp4.msp
Repeat the same in \Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Agents\RAWS64 folder
Note: - Make sure that you dont delete the raws322213rsp4.msp file.
