    New Server
    Windows 2008-r2
    MSSQL2008 - (same server 2)

    I had finally got my new server to connect through migration manager to my old server.

    Out of the 100 sites, 3 or 4 easy, simple sites, regular html, 10 or less emails, no databases or anything special transferred over with no problems. The rest wont transfer.

    I've tried site by site, multiple at a time, etc....

    For the most part, I see the Pmmtemp folder on the old server being populated and I can watch the files grow... Then adventually they stop, and instead of being copied over, they sit there. I've given it hours to copy over small sites and nothing happens.

    I've tried copying the files manually from the old server to the new server and running the migration manager again against local dump files, and it just hangs.

    I basically spent the last 14 hours rebuilding my clients, websites, copying files, etc....

    I have a few last clients who have a lot of email accounts.....

    Is there anyway to trouble shoot why the migrations just hang? Is there a step by step guide anywhere to just backup and convert email acounts for a 9.5.1 server to a 10.1 server?

    I have to admit that I am completely frustrated with the whole migration process.
