EMC Networker backup client failed to backup data on server installed with Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010

You may experience following error when you try to backup server with EMC Networker and installed Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 :

ERROR: VSS failed to initialize for directives, error=0x80042308: The specified object does not exist.
The reason for this error is that Forefront VSS writer is missing some of the VSS components that Networker queries before starting backup. Solution for this behavior is to disable FEP 2010 VSS writer. This can be done by commenting FepWriterManager part in AgentComponents.xml used by FEP 2010. More on how this can be accomplished on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2570654/en-us .
