Plesk 8 - pleskrestore issue

    I recently backed up plesk 8 using pleskbackup utility on a Suse linux system running Plesk 8 in 1and1 using:
    pleskbackup --all backupfilename

    I then re-imaged the 1and1 server with Fedora Core 4 and Plesk 8 and tried to restore the previously backup from Suse running Plesk 8 using:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --create-map pleskbackup-20060606 -map MAP

    and then

    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore pleskbackup-20060606 -map MAP -level all

    When running the last, I get :

    ## ERROR in line 2 : Syntax error: database server is not specified

    That's a bit strange to me, because after opening the MAP file, I clearly see mysql and postgress servers defined.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    PS. The backup includes only 1 domain and it's contents.

    Ouch, the password was causing that message to appear! Because of the symbols that were included in the mysql password the script was confused.
    You Plesk Bad programmers!
