Cause

System state backup fails with the above mentioned error.

Note: Make sure that the domain admin account should not be marked as restricted account.

1] System Logon Account is not configured in Backup Exec
 
2] Domain name is not added in front of the user name in the System Logon Account



 

Solution

Solution 1:

1. Configure System Logon Account by clicking on Network and Logon Accounts in Backup Exec, as shown in figure below [Also make sure

Domain name is added in front on the user name in the System Logon Account]


 

Note: It is recommended to use a NetBIOS syntax for the Domain Admin account instead of a DNS or UPN syntax.  For example:  ‘Domain\vbackup’.

2. Confirm that the SQL(Bkupexec) service on the Media server is running under Local System Account.

3. Confirm that the Backup Exec Remote Agent For Windows Systems is running under Local System account on all the servers being backed up.


Note: Backup Exec account needs to be a Domain Administrator with the following rights mentioned in the article http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH23689

Solution 2:

This issue can occur if Active Directory is not able to authenticate or fails due to the server that holds the OPERATIONS MASTERS role for the

domain is unreachable.  Check the OPERATIONS MASTERS roles to see if this is the case.  If so, the following document from Microsoft can

be used to correct this issue.

Solution 3:

If the remote server is in different domain than the Backup Exec server, a Trust will need to be setup between the domains
 

Workaround: If a Trust can not be set, use Windows Backup to backup the remote system state, then use Backup Exec to back that up with the file backup.

 Solution 4:
