Moving a repository via rsync

Hi all:


I need to move a Subversion repository from one host to another (A to B)
and once that is complete, shutdown A and then rename B to A (to
preserve the hostname, etc.). My first thought was to use svnadmin
dump, transfer the file, and then load with -force-uuid, however, this
was painfully slow and I got stopped by a checksum error on the load.


My question is, can I just shutdown access to the repository (no clients
reading/writing to it), and then rsync the repository over to the new
machine? It's a lot faster than dump/load and I can't currently see why
that won't work just fine.
