Hi,
I currently have a reseller account on a CPanel server (call it server A).

I am now going to get a reseller account on another CPanel server that I have root access too (I'm a server admin for the company). - Server B

Is it possible to move my resold accounts from A to B with only the reseller password?

So I couldn't move over an account by using the reseller that owns it's password - like I could to simply login to the account?

Are we reading from the same page? :)

WHM > Transfers > Copy an account from another server with account password

Allows one with 'root' (which the person has on the B Server) to transfer Cpanel accounts from another Server to that one -- requiring only the Username & PW of the account on the other Server.

Although I haven't done this procedure myself, I hear lots of other people have done it with no problems. I would think that first transfering the Reseller account (and then setting it up properly on the new Server) would have to be done first, then each individual Resold account. Not as fast as if one had 'root' access on both Servers, but still should save some setup time.

Ok, I understand the problem with using Reseller PW instead of account owner. I take that, although Reseller PW works for Cpanel access it will not work in this case because FTP is being used? Being as we know that only the account owner's ID & PW will work for FTP in a normal FTP situation.

Damn - thanks anyway guys.
It looks like I will have to reset the password for each account and e-mail my clients the new one.
