    Whenever I ran the backup wizard, it stopped halfway through and showed
    error 80005008. I found a post on the stating that if you don't select a
    tape changer, the error goes away.
    Sure enough, I tried that and the backup wizard runs fine now.

    Hope it helps someone.

  2. The problem is that this doesn't resolve the underlying problem, it just
    dodges around it.

    There's a good chance that you have one or more DCOM errors being recorded
    in the Event Log related to Exchange. Fix those, and the error is resolved.
