    I am trying to move some clients from and old Plesk 5 server to our new Plesk 7 server, but everytime it starts the dumping process, we end up at the begginng with this error:

    Unable to create a description for the migrated objects:
    Eror during dump retrieval
    Lost connection with the remote host

    Try doing it manually from the shell one domain at a time:

    login to the plesk 7 server via shell and run :
    password=your root pass on old server
    and change your IP for the old server

    PSA_PASSWORD=password /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/launchpad --deploy-agent --local-agent=/usr/local/psa/PMM/PleskX.pl --ip= --agent-name=PleskX.pl --login=root --agent-dir=/home/temp

    PSA_PASSWORD=password /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/launchpad --dump-domains=domain.com --agent-status-file=/home/temp/PleskX.status --ip= --agent-name=PleskX.pl --login=root --agent-dir=/home/temp --dump-file=/home/temp/PleskX.xml

    PSA_PASSWORD=password /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/launchpad --get-content --ip= --agent-name=PleskX.pl --login=root --agent-dir=/home/temp

    PSA_PASSWORD=password /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/launchpad --remove-agent --ip= --agent-name=PleskX.pl --login=root --agent-dir=/home/temp

    If all of the aboves goes ok, then login to migration manager on the new machine and select Import mode instead of Migration

    hope this helps
