    Try to transfer an account to a different server. The user and account already existed on the new server but i wanted it replacing with the version from the other server, whilst keeping the other version handy on the HDD.

    I changed the domain and username of the old account that was 'getting in the way', however restoring the account from the other server gives a very non-verbose 'account creation failed' after extracting the cpmove archive.

    Also, trying to create a blank account manually through WHM just shows 'account creation complete' with no additional text, but the account is not created.

    Any ideas what needs changing so the new account will create?
    (I'm presuming this is some kind of user conflict?)
