    Have you added this new server in domain?

    If you have not then the credentials you should use is Machinename\administrator

    If the server is added to the domain the credentials which you will use will be domainname\administrator 

    Also in case if the machine is not in domain and at time of backup this was in domain you need to add a DNS suffix on the new server 

    Please see this technote for more information about dns suffix
