Plesk 9.5.4 from Windows to Linux

    I'm trying to transfer some domains from a Plesk Windows 9.5.4 to a Plesk Linux 9.5.4. I tried using the Migration Manager but I always get Host is not accessible on the Linux server (the opposite work I tried but that's not what I want). I followed a thread that said I had to make sure network sharing is on and that I can access the C$ with an administrator account on the windows server. That work locally without any problem and there's no firewall on the windows server (in case that could be the case). So the only other option I see is to use backup manager to do it 1 domain at a time but even there on the windows server it will create a zip file and I doubt the linux server will understand it. What are my solutions?

    I figured I had to recreate everything manually. I though they would have made a way to do it with the migration manager or the backup manager but I guess if your not using a windows server as the destination server, there's not much to do.

    So there is no way at all to migrate or restore a backup from Windows to Linux plesk ?
    That would be a bummer !

    Or is there a workaround ?

    I didn't found one so I manually copied all data from the old server to the new server and recreated MySQL database, email accounts, etc. Of course if any emails were still on the old server it didn't follow.
