BackupExec from scratch

Hi Experts,

I have serious problems with my backup exec 2012 server.
The server itself is win2008 and working fine.
But BE is the problem. I cannot start or stop all services, especially BACKUP EXEC SERVER service is not starting. And I cannot stop it, I have to use the task manager to stop it.

When I backup my DB and the catalog, can I install BE2012 from scratch and use my old DB and the catalog ?

I also had backup to disk.
After new installation can I add again this disk folders and import all data ?

Now the following :

After reinstallation, I added the old DB and the old catalog.
I had the same problems with Activejobs.

Then I stopped all services and changed to the new DB and to the new catalog.
Ok, I lost all jobs, but I can recreate them and also the storages.
The problem with ActiveJobs is gone.

After Inventory and Catalog, I have back my restore information.
