    I have a new cpanel server and I am migrating from the old one.

    My chosen domain for the new server's nameserver is hosted on the old server, but I have mapped ns1.mydomain.com to the IP address of the new server and started moving other domains across, which wasworking fine.

    However when I try to do a Cpanel account transfer for the main mydomain.com, I am getting the DOMAIN CONFLICT error.

    The main domain isn't on the system as an account and has no DNS zones - it's just got the ns1.mydomain.com as its hostname. Cpanel must see this as 'owning' the domain and won't let me move the domain account itself to the new server.

    How can I resolve this?

    I will recommend you to use the --force option to restore it forcefully. It should help you in resolving this.

    Hello :)

    Are you positive that no DNS zones exist on the destination server? It looks like a zone might have been added for the primary domain name on the destination server to handle the "A" record for the hostname.

    Thank you.
