I set set BACKUP_OFFLINE=YES in NMSROOT\conf\backup.properties but the problem persist.

The daemons must not be shutting down properly, or something other than an LMS process has this README file opened for writing.  You might try downloading Process Explorer from http://sysinternals.com, and seeing what process has that README file open.  Stop that process, then try the backup again.

Do you see anything open in the NMSROOT/campus/etc/users directory?  According to the log, something is writing to the files in this directory.
