Failed to set central administration Server

Created: 05 Apr 2012 • Updated: 05 Apr 2012 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm getting an error when trying to set an existing Backup Exec 2010 R3 installation to point to a new Central Administration server I just created.

Error read" Failed to set the central administration server. The remote media server is not a central administration server.  You must select a central administration server."  However the new server is and I have a media servers tab in the ribbon.  Not sure what to check at this point

Any advice?
