Unless I'm missing something here, the easiest way would be to backup the database on server 1, copy the backup file over to server 2 and restore it to server 2.

You can rename the database and move the files around as a part of the restore process if you need to.

Easiest way is to create/use a common drive/folder that both servers can see (share, Windows odbc data source, etc.).  Back up the db to that location on the source machine, then restore from it to the destination machine.
