    Hello all,

    Since I couldn't find specific answer to my question on Google search, I'm posting it here, hopefuly someone will be able to help me:

    I have server A and server B. Currently I'm copying cpbackup of server A to server B.

    On server B, when I choose to restore an account, the restoration process will also change the DNS zone of the account, so all IP entries from server A will be changed to B.

    My question is, how do I prevent this?

    Server B will have the same IP as server A, after all the transfer is complete.

    Should I just wait untill transfer is complete, shutdown server A and change IP address on server B to server A address?

    This is my first cpanel "clone" migration :)

    set the main shared ip of server B to the ip of server A (you may get a warning that it does not exist on your system )
    ignore and restore ant it will restore all account to the IP of server A :)
