You can clone a DB and point to it I believe.

There should be a lot more stacks in the logs. Can you look at or send the
full log?

You can check the db, put -deep on it too, but don't runscript. You cloned
all tables/views/constraints/foreignkeys?

You shouldn't need to do this, but if you want to migrate from one env to
another, run the changelog to changelog temp and you can try to
export/import. Or try to export to GSH script if you are fully patched...

While I'm on the topic, generally what is the recommended method for this
sort of task (copying the Grouper registry)? This seemed like a reasonable
(naive?) approach, yet apparently failed for as yet unknown reasons in
practice. We'd like to have a better understanding of this. Is what we're
doing so unusual that others have neither tried nor encountered this?

Unless anyone can provide some guidance on this, we'll probably fall back
on re-provisioning the new registry from scratch with the data, which we
expect will take quite a long time. :(
