ReportServer Subscriptions -- We migrated ReportServer to ReportServerNEW with a simple backup/restore -- on the SAME server.  When we restored ReportServerNEW, we also used the encryption key from the source ReportServer instance, and all reports are accessible now in the new SSRS instance, Report Manager.  

But -- what about the subscriptions?  How do I know they are good?  They may be fine, because I used the steps outlined here for the move:

WHERE it says:    "Subscriptions, cached reports, and snapshots are preserved in the moved database. If a snapshot is not picking up refreshed data after the database is moved, clear the snapshot options in Report Manager, click Apply to save your changes, re-create the schedule, and click Apply again to save your changes."

I just don't know how to confirm.  What is the right way to confirm that the subscriptions are all scheduled/enabled/on in the new instance, after migrating the ReportServer database?
