backupexec 8.0 on Windows 2000 problem - URGENT

backupexec 8.0 on Windows 2000 problem - URGENT


I've installed Backupexec 8.0 on Windows 2000..

Problem : Whenever i submit a backup job .. it displays as running in the active jobs forever... but it doesn't really do anything.. in the meanwhile if i initiate a erase or format or lable media operation it goes through successfully.

If i check the event viewer : it mentions that the BENGINE.EXE (backupexec engine) generated a dr. watson error on some mem addr..

I then need to switch off the HP DAT drive & restart windows 2000 to get rid of the active job entry for the initiated backup operation..

I can take proper backup with NT Backup (Normal NT backup)
& also use the same Backupexec 8.0 software on NT 4.0 (SP4)

This problem is specific to NT2000 only.

Are any patches required???

Any help would be appreciated.
