Hi there,

I want to transfer accounts from one server to another with account password. I am managing both, the old and new server.

All accounts transferred fine except one, where I get the message that the security policy on the remote server forbids the download of the backup file.

This is the error message:
Could not download backup file; security policy on the remote server forbids it.
Failed to fetch cpmove file via cPanel API.
Failed: Error while executing “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/getremotecpmove”. The “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/getremotecpmove” command (process 29616) reported error number 1 when it ended.:

What do I have to change on the original server to allow the download of the backup?

Thanks in advance.
Matthias

Hi @mraab

For the user that is getting this error, do they have a disk space quota that they're at or near? If so on the source server can you try temporarily removing that quota and trying the transfer once more?

Thanks!
