My application log on my backup server was full with this event that arrived once a minute. After some investigation I discovered that I had installed ExecView agent when I last installed Backup Exec and that the Service ExecView Communication Module (ECM) might be connected to the problem. By investigating when it started and what I did to the server at that time, I discovered that I had installed a new version of APC PowerChute Business Edition and that the event had turned up after this point. The backup server has a separate UPS. Some further search on Symantec and Veritas turned up a viable explanation for the problem on Netware servers. The service cannot access Java due to a very long path to Java runtime, due to the location where by APC PowerChute Business Edition installs Java. I did not want to reinstall BackupExec, and therefore, turned the service ExecView Communication Module (ECM) off and set it to manual. This has apparently solved the problem. Further investigations must be done to completely resolve the issue.
