Migrate from Plesk8 to Plesk9

    Hi guys,
    I followed the migration-guide on http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PPP9/Doc/en-US/plesk-9.0-migration-guide/, but encountered a serious problem... Performing the last step (import migrated files to plesk9 via console) leads to an exception "Backup file has wrong signature for this server".

    This is what I want to do:
    I have one root-server where all my domains are hosted, its plesk version is "8.0".
    Now, i want to backup all my hosted domains on this server, copy the backup to my second root-server (other machine with different ip) and migrate to new plesk version "9".

    Is this generally possible?

    Thanks for your help :)
