    I'm trying to restore backups created with pleskbackup Plesk 8.6 to Plesk 10.1.1 (Linux)
    I am able to run the pre9-backup-convert to convert to 9.x format but cannot workout how to convert from 9.x to 10.x.
    The pre10-backup-convert command line options in http://kb.odin.com/en/9578 are incorrect!

    pre9-backup-convert created a number of clients in /var/lib/psa/dumps/clients
    Each client has a file converted_client_name_info_1102161216.xml and domains directory and under each domain there is a converted_Domain_Name_info_1102161216.xml and databases, mailnames and phosting directories.

    How do I convert to 10?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Final

    After so many tries and tests I make it work as:

    Goal to convert from backup 8.x to 10.x
    Hidden Problems: the pre9-backup-convert and pre10-backup-convert use different style of input.
    Steps: Convert from 8.x to 9.x, then convert 9.x to 10.x

    Step 1.
    Convert from 8.x to 9.x
    The backup files of 8.x are one file ending on:*.psa

    you run

    pre9-backup-convert.exe --source=oldFormatBackup.psa --destination=d:\newBackupDir


    Step 2.
    Convert from 9.x to 10.x
    Now the backup are on many files on many directories, one directory per client.

    For every client you run

    pre10-backup-convert.exe --convert -source d:\newBackupDir\Client1\FileCreated.xml -destination d:\FinalBackup\

    Note here that after the source we do not use the '=' any more.

    Hope this helps.
