    I must move all accounts from old vps to new vps, I use 2 cpanel dns only server for clustering, I configured dns cluster (and syncronized) on new vps, I tried with copy of an account and I see that in dns zone (on dns server) the ip is updated with that of new vps.
    I think that copy is easy and so nothing more is required? you confirmed?

    I have some doubts because this is first time that I move accounts with DNS cluster servers

    Hello :)

    Yes, that is correct. The transfer should proceed without issue using the method you described. You may want to remove the old VPS server from the cluster to ensure it does not sync the previous DNS records.

    Thank you.

    I did and everything ok, only a bit question, copy operation created index.html from skeleton directory, I think because cpanel in copy operation remake the account like a new account, for the future is possible bypass the skeleton? or I think that best solutions, in case I use a new and empty server is the set skeleton index.html file after that I imported all accounts :)

    You can modify the files used from the skeleton directory by manually editing or removing them in:

    Code:
    /root/cpanel3-skel
    However, to note, an index.html file is not included by default.

    Thank you.
