    I configured my cpanel/WHM to take backups and transfer them to my new backup server, but when the backup process completed I found out that it skiped or ignored some of my accounts during backup process.
    I've double checked "Backup User Selection" page and seems that all accounts are enabled but cpanel still ignoring some of my accounts.
    What could be wrong with my cpanel?
    Any help would be appreciated

    Check your backup logs at `/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/'. You can search the log for the usernames that have not been backed-up:
    Code:
    grep usernamehere /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup/recentlogfilenameher
    You can also use the before(-Bn) and after(-An) flags with grep to provide n(umber) lines before or after for some context.

    None of those usernames are not mentioned there

    Hi Michael
    There are no errors in backup logs
    Legacy backup is working fine but regular backup is ignoring some accounts

    Please browse to:

    "WHM Home » Backup » Backup User Selection"

    Click on the check box on the upper right of the interface that lists the accounts. Choose "Disable All Backups", let it process, and then choose "Enable All Backups". You can force a backup generation to see if this helps via:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup --force
    Thank you.

    The issue has been resolved
    I found that the accounts are suspended and the "Backup Suspended Accounts" option in backup configuration is disabled! That's why they ignored by cpanel.

    Thanks everyone
