Copied defaultdb to another server and now cannot access events

Path Finder

Running Splunk 5.0.1 on windows 2008R2. I had to move my index to another server...followed the steps perfectly...rolled hot to warm....copied $SPLUNK_home...\defaltdb to same location on new server...started splunk. All looks good but for example on the summary page HostA has 6500 events and when I search all time for HOSTA I on receive 10 events (from today)?? Why can't I access the events copied over? It's not a permissions issue?? Another thing I on a workgroup enviornment not an active directory domain. The user that I am logged in on is the same username on each system.

After starting Splunk are the index sizes the same on both servers?
Is it just defaultdb you transferred over?

Also, have you checked the permissions on the buckets you've moved over? Just to be sure Splunk can read all of them.

Final check might be to run FSCK on them to check their integrity;

It was just the defaultdb that I transfered and all of the permissions are good. I have not run an FSCK yet.
