Restore configuration with beutility.exe

Because someone replaced some faulty disks in a Backup Exec 2010 server in the wrong way, the server is lost and I had to reinstall it. Fortunately, someone else made a copy of the configuration with beutility.exe a few days before.
But I don't manage to read it into the newly installed server. I choose "Copied Media Server Configuration" in beutility.exe. I enter the file, and the credentials. I get the screen "Apply copied media server configuration to media servers". But the job stays at 0% Progress.
What could be the problem?

Here is an explanation of beutility from Symantec's site:

Backup Exec's BEUTILITY can be used to perform maintenance on the Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) database instance.

It's not meant to backup and restore a server.

If you want to restore a server, you should run Backup Exec, select restore and point to the backup files.  If you don't have a backup, you will probably need to manually reconfigure the server.
