I am having similar problems too. Veritas support has not been of
Our problems started with a bengine error. We have tried to remove
Exec, reinstall NT SP5, update MDAC, and reinstall Backup Exec. But
are still problems. (One similar factor in all our problems is the use
a DLT tape drive???) Each day, I have to stop all services in order to
the tape out of the drive. Up until the beginning of this month Backup
was working flawlessly - but now nothing will fix it.

I believe the problem could be related to MDAC and ODBC????
