You can do this in 1 of 3 ways:

1. Using 1 server, you can connect to another server by changing the server name...

2. Use the BE Remote Console that you can install on a workstation (works very well and it is free...see the article below:

3. Load the Enterprise Server Option which has CASO on another server (needs a full installation of BE 2012) and from 1 pane of glass you can manage your environment. This is a licensed option and is overkill for 2 servers, unless you need to duplicate backups between the 2 servers.
