Cause

These errors can be reported if the remote servers in the same domain are down or unreachable.

Solution

Disable the data discovery by unchecking the 'Discover servers that have data that has not been backed up' checkbox at the Backup Exec Settings window. The errors are ignorable if the reported servers are indeed down or unreachable.
