Thanks for writing the script, it's works great with BE 2014 but needs a slight modification for Nagios to display the output correctly.

The line,

txt = "Error on backup job | " & txt

should not contain a pipe '|', because Nagios interprets everything after the pipe as performance data,

Changing this to any other character, like a hyphen, fixed the problem.

txt = "Error on backup job - " & txt

had this issue with my 64 bit BExec server

That resolved it, however check_backupexec now ALWAYS returns OK, even if there are errors.
