Veritas Backup Exec 11d

Synchronisation between backup server and a single host is failing, i’ve tried restarting all the services but thats not helping at all. has some references but the only one related to my specific problem referenced this on an XP machine and said his reboot fixed it.
There was one mention of this issue being seen where its a vault in VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) and was fixed with a hotfix or SP2 so i ran SP2 and so far so good but it usually takes overnight to fail as thats when an incremental push of the backups occurs.
