    In anticipation of the Migration from Hsphere to PPA at some point in the future, I would like to know if there is maybe an option to merge two HSphere clusters into one PPA cluster.

    A little background:
    In HSphere the whitelable/reseller function had a couple of weak spots. One of them was the fact that the same domain registrar account was used for end-users and resellers.
    Because of that some Hsphere businesses decided to run one cluster for Resellers and one for End-Users.
    Now, with the dawn of a Migration from Hsphere to PPA it would be great to finally only have one single cluster.

    So, if it is not to late, could the Developers maybe keep this in mind and offer the option to import two Hsphere clusters into one PPA cluster?

    I'd imagine you would have an issues because of the CP server per cluster limitation, so your CP references may be a little screwy as there currently is no way to merge the CP server db's clusters, you have to migrate them accross . With this in mind, i've merged my two clusters ahead of PPA :)

    Would be great to have any new information on migration from HSphere to PPA and if they have this type of import utility then that would be an added bonus!

    Hi,
    Since migration form H-Sphere to PPA is being implemented per account, I see no problems in migrating accounts from different H-Sphere clusters into the same PPA instance.

    Thanks Andrey,

    I would have loved to know that before :) Good to know its being done per account and it will just make the subscription off the back of the HSphere.

    Thanks again,

    Mark

    I know that this is a long-awaited piece. We started coding. As soon as there will be something to try, we'll let you know.

    Hi,
    At the moment we have migration for H-Sphere Unix hosting, including web, DB and mail. Windows hosting migration will be developed later this year. Billing part will be addressed when we'll finish our new PPA Billing module. Its preview will become available in September.

    Regards,
    Andrey Andriatis

    What is the status of PPA migration to Hsphere for Linux for 1) billing module 2) Opensrs domain registration, 3) reseller accounts? My understanding is that hsphere will EOL in 2014, so we need to hurry and see if PPA will provide the tools for proper and complete migration of accounts.
