In my previous post I upgraded from Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 to Symantec Backup Exec 2010. I ran into a few problems during the upgrade process, including one that caused the nightly backups to fail. Here is the error in the backup job log:
Completed status: Failed Final error: 0xe0001201 – For this operation, the Backup Exec Virtual File Filter (VFF) driver must be installed on the media server. The VFF driver is installed when you install any of the following Backup Exec agents or options: Exchange Agent Active Directory Recover Option VMware Virtual Infrastructure Agent Microsoft Virtual Server Agent Final error category: Resource Errors For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-4609

RDPing from one physical computer to another physical computer is easy and sound between the two works just fine. This is because both machines (most likely) have physical sound cards.
Sometime during my travels, I loaded Windows 7 onto a Virtual Machine (VM) running on Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. Virtual Machines in Hyper-V don’t have physical or even virtual sound cards like VPC. When RDPing to a Windows 7 VM the sound card is listed as Remote Audio. This is fine and will actually push through a decent amount of sound. While testing, it seemed to work fine for WMV files and a few other formats. For some reason, I was unable to get it to work with AVI files, and flash websites like youtube.com. I wanted full sound capabilities. So here is what I was able to get working.
