    Is it possiblt to move a Domain from ClientA to ClientB easily? If so, I'm missing it.

    Yes it can easily be done using the following comand:
    "%plesk_bin%\domain.exe" -u <domain name> -clogin <client login name>

    <domain name> is the domain name that you want to transfer.
    <client login name> is a login name of the client who you want to transfer the domain.

    Move domain not working

    We're using Plesk 7.5.4 on a Windows machine. The option move to antoher client is not yet present in our Plesk environment (Plesk 7.6 does).

    We're trying to move domains from one client to another. Therefore we use the command line utility as earlier suggested. But, every client is using another set of IP adresses. So the IP addresses used in the domain DNS config also needs to be updated. This is where the problem rises. Moving the domain to another client is working, but the ipaddress is not updated.

    As suggested in an earlier post and in the KB article of SWSoft (ID# 991) we use a specific command line rule to move a domain, including the ipaddress option. See the code below

    "%plesk_bin%\domain.exe" -u [domain without www] -clogin [name of new client] -ip [new ipaddress]

    During the execution of this line it returns an error. It is an HTML error with a lot of non-info. One line is usefull in specific;

    PHostingManager() constructor failed: Unable to set current ip address: IP address is missing.

    The domain has been moved to the new client, but the ipaddresses in the DNS of this domain is not updated. The ipaddress is in use on the server by the new client, so thats not the problem. A domain in Plesk with nothing setup (no hosting, no forwarding etc.) is moved without eny erros, even the ipaddresses are updated. But when a domein has hosting set up (like mysql db, emailaddresses etc.) it moves, but the ipaddresses of the DNS config of that domain is not updated.

    We can upgrade from Plesk 7.5.4 to 7.6.*, so the options becomes available in Plesk, but we'd rather not update (because of al the update issues).

    Maybe we can change it directly in the MySQL database? If so, what are the changes to be made?

    Or is there a setting in Plesk that we need to change before running the command line code?

    Other suggestions?

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.
