In relation to my question about SQL Server 2005 migration procedure, I am re-creating the databases on the new server.
I noted that the old server has the following databases (outside of System Databases):
1. Analysis Server Repository 2. Archive 3. BCI 4. BDD Data Center 5. Nemo 6. Fixing 7. Neutron 8. ReportServer 9. ReportServerTempDB 10. Sharepoint 11. STS_ho_whdata_1 12. TVS
Now, some of the databases are clearly custom-made, e.g., #5, #6, #7, #11, etc. However there are some databases that -- from their name -- doesn't seem like databases created by the (previous) dev/maintainer, e.g., #1 and #8.
Is it safe for me to re-create all databases willy-nilly, and just 'copy' the data from the old server to the new server?
