Backup Exec 2012 uses powershell to place and remove the vault store and index locations in backup mode, if on the EV server old version of EVRT.dll is located then it may lead to this issue. Refer to Enterprise Vault technote TECH183277



1. Identify the correct version of EVRT.dll in the Enterprise Vault installation directory.  (open properties of this file and review file version under details TAB)

2. Search entire Enterprise Vault Server for EVRT.dll

3. For any other versions found in other locations check the file version and rename/remove EVRT.dll.  The only copy of EVRT.dll that should remain is the one in the Enterprise Vault installation directory (Default: C:\Program Files\Enterprise Vault)

4. Run the backup again and confirm if issue is resolved.


If the issue still persists, following must be checked:

1. Ensure that the Remote Agent for Windows service on the Enterprise Vault server is running under Local System Account.

2. Open the Remote Agent Utility - go to Publishing tab and make sure it only contains entries for the Backup Exec media server.
