Solved! Go to Solution.
I installed R3 and the remote agents and now my system state backups on my 2008 R2 servers are back to normal - even slightly faster than they were pre- Server 2008 R2.
Now I can stop my convoluted - native windows sys-state backup to a remote share which is then backed up by backup exec.
Just in case those of you had the problem with slow system state backup then upgraded to R3 and fix the speed problem but appear another problem with stalled system state backup, see this forum:
