While testings backup on a x64 Win2003 Server today, I keep getting strange errors from NTBackup and EventLog.
Event Type: Error

Event ID: 6013

Sqllib error: OLEDB Error encountered calling IDBInitialize::Initialize. hr = 0x80004005.

Well as it turns out the application I was testing had a dependency on MSDE and I just had to install the patch to MSDE http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913100 for x64 machines only.
