    Hi all,

    I want to copy an account from one cPanel server to another, but the DNS records for this account already exist on the 2nd server. I have a DNS cluster setup between the 2 server, and want to copy an account across to a 2nd server, without deleting it from the 1st server, and without having to delete the DNS records.

    How can I do this?

    Just use the "Copy an account from another server" function from WHM. It will copy the account from the other server, and change the DNS zone's records to point to the new server...

    I don't want to change ANY DNS records, on any server, when I do the copy.
