Restoring files using Symantec Backup exec 12

Last Modified: 2016-02-01
We have an old server that is not in production that has an external drive with files that were backed up by Symantec backup exec.  The server has crashed and we need to access that external drive for files needed in for a lawsuit.  I built a Windows 2003 server and installed the backup exec software and created a backup group.  The server recognizes the files on the external drive but I am unable to create a restore job.  Any help with this would be appreciated.  When I try to create a restore job the error message pops-up that a backup group etc.  The computer is not a domain computer and is not joined to the network.
