Actually you don't even *need* to do the svnadmin create on server 2.
You can just copy the whole repository directory from server 1 to
server 2 (you'll want to shut down any Subversion server processes to
be safe) and fire up the server (with the proper configuration) on
server 2.

If you want to utilize the new diff format in the repository, then
yes, you'll need to dump/reload.
