Your tape library should be connected to the server where you are installing Backup Exec.

For Migration of backup exec from one server to another refer to this technote:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH67296 : How to migrate / move Backup Exec from one version to another on different machine with a different server name.

You may use the existing tapes, before restoring any old data you will have to either copy catalogs

from the existing server or run catalog job on the tapes.

Data will remain intact as far as you dont ovewrite the tape

Yes You May use the Old backup sets.

You need to either recatalog the tapes or need to copy the catalogs folder from the old server to the new server
