    [+] Plesk Migrator user interface was translated to all languages supported by Plesk.
    [+] Administrator now can perform migration from Helm 3 using the Plesk Migrator user interface.
    [-] Migration from Helm 3 failed if some of the source servers did not exist anymore. (PMT-2315)
    [-] Migration from cPanel failed in case of broken "shadow" file for some domain on the source server.(PMT-2432)

    Hi All,

    New version of Plesk Migrator 1.10 has been released!

    Many issues were fixed based on feedback from customers.

    What's new:

    [+] Upgrading the Plesk Migrator component is now blocked if a migration is in progress or if some files in the panel-migrator/backend/ directory are locked.
    [-] If a reseller was selected for migration, customers belonging to the administrator were migrated as if they belonged to a reseller. (PMT-2697)
    [-] Migration from Plesk on Linux hanged if two or more subscriptions with system user names present on the destination server were being migrated. (PMT-2716)
    [-] If the Backup Manager component was not installed on the source Plesk server, some critical objects were not restored after migration. (PMT-2696)
    [-] Warnings displayed on the pre-check screen persisted even after fixing the root cause and clicking Refresh. (PMT-2632)
    [-] Custom error documents were not transferred during migration from Plesk for Windows servers with .NET Framework 2.0 installed to Plesk servers with .NET Framework 4.0. (PMT-2586)
    [-] When key-based authentication was used during migration, Plesk Migrator generated a new pair of keys. (PMT-2548)
    [-] Custom error documents could not be restored after migrating domains with virtual directories pointing to the domain's httpdocs directory. (PMT-2636)
    [-] Webmail was enabled for a subscription on a destination server after migration even if it was disabled on the source server. (PMT-2688)
    [-] The behavior of the "Transfer the following configuration and content" option was not described clearly in the Plesk Migrator user interface. (PMT-2642)
    [-] Descriptions of resellers, customers, subscriptions, and mailboxes were not transferred during migration from Plesk. (PMT-2630)
    [-] If a migrated subscription could not be created in Plesk, the post-migration check report was not generated. (PMT-2527)
    [-] Migration stopped if a subscription included into the migration list was absent from the source server. (PMT-2659)
    [-] No error messages were displayed in the Plesk Migrator user interface if there were no available IP addresses on the destination server. (PMT-2596)
    [-] In some cases the migration could fail because the pre-migration check calculated the number of available domains on the destination server incorrectly. (PMT-2532)
    [-] Content placed in folders excluded from the migration was lost. (PMT-2637)
    [-] Migration could not be started if a source panel type was selected incorrectly during the first attempt to start a migration. (PMT-2683)
    [-] If the migration was performed with the "Adjust the configuration files of commonly used web applications" option disabled, the migration report contained an empty "Adjusted applications" section. (PMT-2681)
    [-] The description of the "ssh-key" option in the samples of configuration files was unclear. (PMT-2671)
    [-] Parallels Pro Control Panel: During migration of IDN web site from Parallels Pro Control Panel for Linux, language-specific characters were migrated in Punycode. (PMT-2650)
    [-] Helm: During migration from Helm 3, the private files of a domain were migrated to a directory with a duplicated domain name in the path. (PMT-2658)
    [-] cPanel: During migration from cPanel, unprocessed Apache access log files were not transferred to Plesk. (PMT-2475)

    If you have any thought on how to improve Migrator, please share.

    There was only bugfix in this build:

    Migrator 1.11.1 has been released!

    Here is what's new:

    [-] Copying of all DB and mail content did not start unless file content copying is finished.

    I am glad to announce release of Plesk Migrator extension v.1.12

    Changes:

    [+] Microsoft SQL database migration improvements: now the dump of the source server is created by means of Microsoft SQL and the interaction with the database server is performed from the source server, thus solving the problem of connection from the remote servers.
    [+] Improvements of mail content migration on Windows: copying of mail content is now faster, the content is synchronized during the repeated migration so that only new emails are copied.
    [+] Migration of subscription permissions on Windows was optimized for better performance in case of large amount of directories.
    [+] Hosting description samples were added to the Plesk Migrator extension. (PMT-2732)
    [-] Plesk Migrator user interface could become unavailable in case of problems of migration session directory. (PMT-2953)
    [-] Migration failed if a subscription contained additional users with passwords in wrong Base64 encoding. (PMT-2933)
    [-] Confusing error messages were displayed after removing of the Plesk Migrator extension (PMT-2912)
    [-] Migration of Microsoft SQL database failed in case when Microsoft SQL server was running under a custom user. (PMT-2888)
    [-] Migration from Confixx was blocked in case when some binary data was present in database fields on the source server. (PMT-2884)
    [-] Error reporting was unclear in case of Plesk migration for some non-English Windows localizations. (PMT-2877)
    [-] Migration from custom hosting: Post-migration checks were applied for all subscriptions and not only for those that were selected for migration. (PMT-2876)
    [-] The check-infrastructure command in CLI failed if it was run before the check command. (PMT-2874)
    [-] After migration from Plesk on Windows some temporary data remained on the source server. (PMT-2873)
    [-] If business model for a domain was not converted after upgrade from Plesk 9.5 to Plesk 10.1 on a source server, such a domain was not included into a migration list. (PMT-2867)
    [-] Migration from custom hosting: Plesk Migrator tried to add the "www" prefix to a domain with wildcard in name when this option was not allowed by Plesk. (PMT-2865)
    [-] In case database is switched from source to target without actual data transfer (DB assimilation), no any messages about this were included into the info.log file during migration. (PMT-2860)
    [-] In some cases additional users of subscription could get wrong email address after migration. (PMT-2859)
    [-] Migration on Linux failed if the “root” user's home directory pointed not to /root. (PMT-2856)
    [-] Migration from Confixx failed if a domain contained several subdomains with forwarding from one to another by chain. (PMT-2852)
    [-] Migration list generation is blocked if a subscription is associated with absent add-on service plan or if add-on service plan belongs to another owner. (PMT-2837)
    [-] Migration failed for a subscription with dublicated DNS records. (PMT-2829)
    [-] Migration of a protected directory from Confixx failed if the directory name contained spaces (PMT-2826)
    [-] Every next call of the dump agent cleared the logs of a previous call of dump agent in the migration session directory. (PMT-2822)
    [-] In case DNS service was turned off on the source server Plesk Migrator still verified if it is enabled on the target server. (PMT-2821)
    [-] Migration on Windows failed if the Windows dump agent output contained some garbage caused by third-party DLLs. (PMT-2799)
    [-] Migration on Windows failed when IPv6 was used for connection to a target Plesk server. (PMT-2794)

    You are welcome with any suggestions on further improvement.

    Migrator 2.0.2 just has been released!

    What's new:

    [*] Plesk Migrator interface improved drastically. Many features enabled in UI that previously had been present in CLI only.
    [-] After removing migrated subscriptions from the source server, associated MySQL databases hosted on a remote MySQL server registered both in the source Plesk and the destination Plesk were removed as well. (PMT-3077)
    [-] When migrating multiple subscriptions to a Plesk for Windows server with a Microsoft SQL Server installed locally and one or more remote Microsoft SQL Server instances registered in it, all Microsoft SQL Server databases associated with the subscriptions being migrated were created in the Microsoft SQL Server set as default on the administrator level, even if one or more subscriptions were assigned to a service plan which had a different Microsoft SQL Server specified as default. (PMT-3045)
    [-] When migrating from Confixx, a confusing error message was logged if Plesk Migrator was unable to retrieve DNS server settings on the source server. (PMT-3021)
    [-] Migration failed if the IP address and port of the Microsoft SQL Server on the destination server were separated by a comma in the database server properties. (PMT-3056)

    Your feedback about new look & feel is much appreciated.

    Hi, Paul! Thank you for reporting - we published https://kb.plesk.com/en/129990 even though were unable to reproduce it locally (checked only fresh Plesk Onyx installation with Migrator extension over clean CentOS 7 operation system scenario).
