System state backup failure

Guest

I have a Windows 2000 server ( SP3) running in application terminal server
mode. I am having very frequent failures of the system state backup.

If I run NTBackup, the system state backup completes with skipped files and
the following error in the logs:
Error: You do not have permission to access portions of System
State\Registry\software.
Please see the owner or administrator to get permission.
Warning: Unable to open the file \Registry\software - skipped

I do not believe that it is a permissions issue because at times, I can run
this backup successfully. I am an administrator of the server and as far as
I know there have not been any permission changes.

When I run my Veritas Backup Exec (ver 8.6) backup, I also get a system
state backup error.
Unable to open the item Registry\software - skipped.
An error occurred retrieving System State files.
The System State file could not be backed up.

About 1 out of 5 times, I get either backup type to succeed. This server
reboots every week and I have not applied any patches recently.

Does anyone have any insight in to what might be causing the
Registry\software backup to fail?

Many thanks for any advice.

I'm running into this on a german W2K terminal server. Newest patches
and service packs apllied.
Is there any possible solution yet?
