I've performed the final 3 steps in the lab but the results are the same - missing db files - is this an issue? I've bolded the 3 db files showing in my backup that do not appear in the new rpm directory.

    I don't believe there is any problem here.  It is generating new database; notice it is smaller as the backup one had files that showed updates.  It's like housecleaning.  I would just check something like rpm -qa doesn't fail since it reads entire data base.
