Thanks for posting Cliff.
I did pay attention to permissions on NAS: Joined to AD and allowed Backup
Operators, Domain Admins and Administrator (it worked before with these
permissions). For testing purpose I allowed full public access to Backup
Directory on NAS - no joy; and re-ran backup wizard with a different backup
destination to a HDD volume, but still not working.
A little bit more history on this server: SBS installation was migrated to a
new HP Server using Acronis Universal Restore and everything worked OK for
about a month, before backup started crapping up.
