V-79-57344-3844 - The media server was unable to connect to the Remote Agent on machine MIS8.
The media server will use the local agent to try to complete the operation.
WARNING: Media servers cannot completely protect remote Windows-based servers or workstations unless the Backup Exec Remote Agent is installed and running on each remote Windows-based server or workstation to be protected. Data loss can occur if the Remote Agent is not running while backing up remote Windows-based computers.

What is the MIS8. Is this a NAS box which doesn't have Remote Agent installed or a Windows Server.
If it's a NAS box with doesn't have remote Agent and if you are trying to backup through User Defined Selection that message is comman as it would try to fallback on the local remote agent to do the backups.
If it's a windows Server, you need to verify that the RAWS agent is up and running and there
For anyone whoe is refering to this post later sometime BE 12.0 does not support Windows 2008 R2 as Media server or even Remote Server.
Best supported version for Win 2008 R2 is Backup Exec 2010 and above.
