That is a workable solution.

However, if an exp/imp of the data into a new database is feasible, then you may want to give that some consideration.

Upgraded databases at times carry some old baggage along with them.

I've worked on databases that were originally 8.0.3, and now upgraded to This does at times cause problems. I've run into issues upgrading
those databases, issues that would not have been present had we been able to start with a clean database. I don't recall now just what the issues
were, but they did make life somewhat difficult for awhile.

Just some food for thought.
