Failed to log on to Microsoft Windows. Symantec backup Exec 2012 Error in Backup Job.

Or, Failed to log on to Microsoft Windows. Ensure that your logon credentials are correctly entered.

Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Schedule Job Error:
The job failed with the following error: Failed to log on to Microsoft Windows. Ensure that your logon credentials are correctly entered and that they meet the following minimum requirements to log on to a Windows computer: - The credentials used are a member of the Backup Operators group. - For Windows Vista/2008 and later, the credentials have the Log on as a batch job privilege. Additional privileges may be required to access resources on the Windows computer.

Solution:
1. Login to Client Server (For which backup is failing).
2. Right Click on Computer > Manage > Configuration > Local User and Group > Group
3. Right Click on Group > Properties > Add > Here add your logon account of backup server which is being used for taking backups (if you will edit credential setting of any backup job, you can see the logon account information which is being used for backups) > Ok.
4. Restart Backup Exec Remote Agent services on client server.
5. Now Login to Backup Exec Server
6. Restart Backup Exec Agent Browser Service.
7. Restart Backup Exec Job Engine Service.

Now you can check with browsing backup job setting of problematic backup client server, It will allow you to browse it's directories.

Run the backup job again, it should not throw this backup failure error again...
