Have you installed BE 2012 SP2, if not please do so as it does fix a lot of issues. Also, what  are you trying to restore.

See if the issue is similar to the one mentioned in this technote

         Do you have a job with same name?

Please confirm if it is BE 12.0 or BE 2012. If its 2012 please follow the steps suggested by Jaydeep.

I do get this error message from time to time when the job creation is done when the media server is busy.
