Hi cogit,

Rather than focusing on the Redeployment Tool, you need to view this as a Backup and Restore.  There are actually SIX databases which need to be restored to your new server:

Organization_name_MSCRM
Organization_name_METABASE
ReportServer
ReportServertempdb
master
msdb
 
Full overview of the process is here:  http://www.microsoft.com/dynamics/crm/using/deploy/backup.mspx
