Problems with Plesk Migration Manager

    We are trying to move many sites from a cPanel server to a Plesk v7.5.4_build75051209.14 os_RedHat el4 machine and are experiencing many problems.

    The process goes like this.

    1) I package up the sites using cPanel9.pl --no-compress --accounts=acctname
    2) SCP the files over to the new server
    3) copy and chown the files to /usr/local/psa/PMM/archives
    4) copy the cPanel.xml file to /usr/local/psa/PMM/var/dump.xml
    5) Proceed to use the PMM took from within Plesk.

    However, we are seeing quite a few errors. Most seem to be OK anyway, but the database errors are not. This is common for almost every domain:

    1. Failed deployment of database user username of database username_dbname
    Execution of '/usr/local/psa/bin/database.sh' '--update' 'username_dbname' '-add_user' 'username' '-type' 'mysql' '-passwd' '' failed with the return code 1.

    Unable add user to database: Unable to create the database user: User username already exists.

    [Plus many more...]

    I believe the problem is that username is already assigned to another database, which is common. A single username can span multiple databases, so this script fails.

    I see how to manually manipulate the psa database to account for this, but it's a tedious process.

    Does anyone here have any experience they can share regarding this?
