R77.30 to R80.10 Migrating logs

Upgrading R77.30 to R80.10, Management server only to start. Current Management server is a VM running GAIA R77.30, a new VM with R80.10 has been created. The plan is to use the Migrate command to export the database, swap IP addresses, then import the database on the new server. We have a large amount of log files and do not want to use the “-l” to include the logs. We are trying to minimize the amount of time to get the new server online and would like to move most of the logs over prior to the move.  

Can just the .log files be copied over, or do the other files (.log_stats, .logaccount_ptr, .loginitial_ptr, .logptr) need to be copied as well, or will the new server create these files?
