I have a 2-week-old installation of Server 2012 Essentials. Windows Server Backup runs twice per day. Every time the backup runs, I get about five of these errors in the System event log:

I recently transitioned from SBS 2008 to a clean install of Server 2012 Essentials. Most things went smoothly, but one issue took a lot of work to resolve: on an XP development machine, I could read from but not write to the SQL 2000 server running on Server 2003.More...
