  2. Start Backup Exec at the stand-alone media server.

  3. From the Tools menu, click Set Central Administration Server.

  4. Enter the name of the central administration server.

    An informational alert appears stating that the media server will be managed by the specified central administration server.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Click Close.

  7. Restart the Backup Exec media server.

  8. On the central administration server's navigation bar, click Media Servers.
