Backup Exec 2010 fresh install on new server questions

I am in the process of creating a new server to put backup exec on. I want to do a fresh start to backup  exec and not migrate anything over from the old back exec 2010 version. I am creating it on a windows 2008 sp2 64 bit server. The original server is a 2003 storage windows server 32 bit. So my questions are.
1. After installing BE210 on the new server can I just use the trial version until I take my licenses off the old server or will I need to install those license keys when I first install BE2010 on the new server. Which way is the best way to do it? Do I just remove them off the current server and install them on the new one? Or is there a proper proceedure to remove license keys to reuse them. Do I need to uninstall the remote agents off the machines they are and reinstall them when I want them to see the new BE2010 server?
2. I will be migrating to exchange 2010 in the future. Will the windows 2008 SP2 64 bit be the right OS for the exchange 2010 or should I just install the windows 2008 R2 64 version instead. I know that exchange 2010 will need backup exec on a 64 bit machine.

1. You should be able to use the same keys, when you are done with the migration you can uninstall from the old server.

2. Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 will work

Do I uninstall first from the old server or do I install the license keys first to the new server?

Do I need to uninstall the remote agents and reinstall to be able to see the new BE2010 Media server?

I would leave the existing installation in case something goes wrong.

You might be able to update the remote agents to point to the new media server. If you can't re-point them I would personally uninstall/reinstall from the new media server but it looks like from this article below you might be able to change it?
