BE 2010 copied BEDB to new media server- devices are discovering for ever

I am basically trying out a disaster recovery by copying BEDB to a new server and bringing up the devices on the new server. I have some CIFS shares & OST with data backed up and some jobs related that. Both the servers are identical in nature (except that the old one is Win 2008 and the new one is windows 2003, sounds odd but this is just a test and I could find these 2 servers)

1. Copied the bedb_dat.mdf & bedb_log.ldf files to the new server with different name in same domain

2.  launched beutil.exe and copied the new db on to the new server, the operation was successful.

3. But  in the device section they still show as discovering under the old server , the job etc seems to be copied.

 

- Are the steps done right?

-How can I get the device discovered properly and run the restore from the new media server.

 

 

 

thanks

Don
