Its wierd, anyway i put another server online with a new tapedrive and im not getting the error anymore. thanks guys
I had this problem for ages and almost gave up. My Win2K3 Dell server was crashing due to a combination between BE9.0 and Mcafee ViruScan 8.0. After applying ALL hotfixes/patches/upgrades from Dell, MS, McAfee and Veritas I solved the crashes but not this particular issue. That was until I decided to disable the on-access scan from my ViruScan console and do a test backup like that.
It worked like a charm so here's the fix: you either disable ViruScan for the duration of the backup or configure the A/V not to access the shadow copy locations during the backup.
The problem I think, could occur with other A/V products as well.
