The Question is:

Backup logs are listing the file_id instead of the file name.
%BACKUP-I-WRITEBACK, error writing backup date for BUS0D1$DIA1: file ID
 (33703,1* 80,0)
-SYSTEM-W-NOSUCHFILE, no such file
How can have the file name show?

The Answer is :

  The file is gone.  There is no file.  There is no filename.
  The file was apparently moved, renamed, or deleted between the
  time when the BACKUP originally found and saved it, and when
  BACKUP later returned to attempt to set the file backup date.
  The command HELP/MESSAGE WRITEBACK produces:
 WRITEBACK,  error writing backup date for 'device-name' file ID
  Facility:     BACKUP, Backup Utility
  Explanation:  The Backup utility encountered an error during an attempt
                to update the backup date of the specified file. If other
                file activity is occurring on the volume, the error may be
                caused by another user who may have deleted the file during
                the backup procedure.
  User Action:  Take action based on the accompanying message.
