BackupExec Restore Under a Different Media Server

I have a WS2003 box that is not a DC but rather just a media server for Symantec BackupExec 12.5

Six months ago the computername on this server was VIDEO3. Two months ago I changed the name to VideoUtil01.

I need to restore some files that were backed up when the machine was named Video3 but the backup fails with the message shown below. I strongly suspect that it is because of the change made to the Computername and the fact that it is trying to start the remote agent for Video3.

Is there any way to restore these files, backed up when the machine was named Video3, to the machine under it's current name of VideoUtil01?

Thank you... Herb
