I own a server with cPanel and just got a new server. I host multiple clients, and need to migrate to the new server. I tried to use the transfer feature, and everything says it works. But when I set my hosts file on my local machine to point the domains I am trying to transfer to my new machine's ip, all I get is the default page when I goto the site. looking at the log, this is the error's i get.(and I have already rebuilt my vps and reintstalled cpanel trying to fix this):

Then I tried adding bradsweb.info manually beforehand, but then it won't transfer the account at all because it says it's owned by the system.

Is there a better way to migrate one server to another?

Exactly same problem here. I just started to moving accounts from one server to another and I have the same errors.
Moved a lot of accounts few months ago without any problems. It may be something wrong with the new 11.32.2.x cPanel version.

EDIT:
It's a known bug introduced few days ago, they are working on the fix.
Thanks for quick and professional support cPanel.

Same here! This is a rather serious issue for us as we have a server that is starting show issues, and we need to migrate the accounts before the thing fails completely! We started the process day before yesterday and every single account has failed! Had 2 techs spent most of the day trying to figure out what they had done wrong. When I finally got involved I discovered they were up against a wall due to a product we are paying for which has always worked very well for us in the past!

Any ETA on the fix for this? PLEASE CPANEL!?! We've got some very key clients we're going to lose on this if it can't be made to work properly before the weekend is out! Any workaround? Anyone have ANY info that will help?!?

Well, for me a quick work around is to copy account, and when is finished, I go on cpanel for that account, erase subdomains, and after that I create manually the domains subdomains. However this take ages, also I reset customers password. I repeat for me this is happening only on domain that have addon domain ( I think subdomain also )
