    I have an existing windows 2003 plesk 9.5.1 server with about 45 clients and 130 domains.

    I just aquired a new windows 2008 box running plesk 10.1.1 and would like to get instructions on how to perform the migration.

    I've read the docs, and the forums, and I feel stuff is lacking

    1) I opened the firewall on the source server so that all ports were accessible from the new server
    2) I downloaded and ran the migration agent on the plesk 9.5.1 box.
    3) I go to the new server, start new task > transfer from another server > ip, windows admin username/password, C:\temp, all resellers.

    I hit next, and after a little pause I get the following:
    Error: Unable to connect with remote agent (connection to host is not available)


    is there anything that I am missing... is there an easier way to do this?

    no more hair on my head, but found an answer

    After going and reading every post in the migration forum, I found that the migration agent's config file did not automatically bind itself to an IP. I went and picked one of the IP's from my server, typed it in, saved, restarted the agent and I was able to continue to the next steps.

    I have no idea how long the transfering of the sites will take but I at least see files being created on my C:\pmmtemp\ folder on both the source and destination folders... seems encouraging.
