    Hello,

    While moving accounts with multycopy, the reported success is fake. It reports success with a green check based on the creation/restoration of the account only. If you have opted for the streaming of homedir over ssl and if it fails, you will have no idea whether the account was transferred correctly or not.

    This is the worst when you have 100's of accounts to move, as you can't look inside each and every log. Here is a case of an account sometimes ago --

    Code:
    [B]Streaming Homedir from source server....[/B]

        Done
        xferstream tag passed!
        /bin/gtar: Read 131 bytes from -
        /bin/gtar: Unexpected EOF in archive
        /bin/gtar: Unexpected EOF in archive
        /bin/gtar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    
    Done
    The error is visible to us in logs, but cPanel has reported the process as success and anyone not digging the logs will be convinced that the account has been transferred correctly.
