Moving Lync 2010 Install

I need to move an installation of Lync Server 2010 to another server. So I need detailed instructions on how to move or uninstall Lync and reinstall on a  new server. The new box will have a different name and Ip then the original deployment.

I recently moved our Lync environment over from a standard server to an enterprise pool.  
If you're moving from a standard server to a new standard server that isn't currently in production you can use the topology builder to remove the current server, publish the topology and then run setup on the old Lync server.  From there you can use the topology builder to define the new system.

This is the process that I followed.
1. Open the Lync Topology builder and define the new servers that you will be implementing.  
2. Publish the topology to Active Directory
3. Run the Lync setup on each server, assign certificates from a public/private CA following the Lync certificate guidelines http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398066
4. Create/modify internal and external DNS records to reflect the changes and additions.
5. Configure the new Lync pool with the desired options (Enterprise Voice, conference options, etc.)
6. Migrate test user to new pool and verify functionality before moving remaining users
7. Use the link from the above post to migrate your CMS to the new MSSQL DB server.
8. Use the Lync Topology builder to remove the old servers from the topology and publish.
9. Run Lync setup on the old servers to remove the Lync software.
