Does anybody have positive experience in case of transfer vCenter Postgres database from existing vCSA to newly deployed vCSA with the same DNS name and IP address?
What configuration settings will be successfully transferred and what will be lost?
Datacenter(s), Clusters, ESXi hosts, vDistributed switch(es), VMs registration, Datastores, Datastore Clusters, HA settings, DRS settings, DRS rules - Yes (?)
Events, Tasks, Performance statistics - Yes (?)
Global Permissions, Permissions at vCenter level and beneath - No (?)
Any helpful information would be appreciated.

Why would you want to do this rather than just restoring from a file-based backup?
File-level vCSA restore was successful but domain join operation is still corrupted.
That doesn't sound like a problem to be solved with a database restoration 'hack' like what you're asking.
What's the error message when you try joining vcsa to domain?
