Watch Out for Migration Problems with DNS

    I want everybody to be aware of potential issues with the Migration Manager.

    We just completed a migration from a Plesk 5.0.5 server to a Plesk 8.0.1 server. We moved over 150 domains using the Migration Manager.

    After a thorough review of our DNS entries and were very surprised that 36 of the migrated domains did NOT copy over the mail.domain.com A record.

    To the best of our determination, these records are in the old server's Plesk database (dom_recs), and are also in the old server's zone files.

    I don't know if this is a specific issue to migrations from 5.0 to 8.0, or a more wide spread problem.

    Can anybody else confirm or deny this particular issue?
