Is it possible to save and export the backup job to another server?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am a new Backup Exec user and after working with CA Brightstore for several years our company has decided to use Backup Exec in future.
After looking in several screens, option and surfing hours on the internet I have decided to put my question online. Maybe the more experienced Backup Exec users know the answer of my question which is quite simple:

Is there any possibility to save a current backup job or a job which is linked to another job to another server?
For example; you can save CA Arcserve jobs (*.ASX) and import those files on another server.
The option "Edit - Copy" -> Copy to this media server is not an option for me.

The two backup servers are exactly the same; both HP Proliant ML350 server with Backup Exec 2010 R2. For example; Server1 and Server2
Server1 is currently in use; Server2 will be used next Saterday after the full restore from tape has been successful.

Is there any option to export the correct settings to the new server?

Regards Guido
