    Soon we move to a other datacenter and therefore get new IP addresses, host name and the nameservers remain the same, only the IP addresses change. What steps should I make in WHM?

    I must add the new IP address in WHM to Add New IP Address. should I remove the old IP addresses?

    and then the IP Migration Wizard to run?

    Do i need to do this?

    These are my steps:
    OLD DC:
    1. ``perl -pi.bak -e "s/14400/900/g" *.db``
    2. Wait 48 hours
    3. Change everything in the server so eth0 will bootup on new network
    4. Run the migrate tool in WHM
    5. Finish it.
    6. Sync dns servers.
    7. Shutdown servers

    8. Transfer to new DataCentre

    NEW DC:
    9. Boot up and check if eveything is working.
    10. ``perl -pi.bak -e "s/900/14400/g" *.db``

    1.you need to change old ip to new ip in your domain(mange DNS/nameserver)
    2. contact your WHM provider to change/update your WHM license ip
    3. in your WHM panel change name server ip. or delete the old one and add a new one

    Don't you need to increment your namesevers serial numbers to prevent an error?

    If so, cPlicensing.net has/had a if you need it to do the updates for the serial numbers. I have a copy of it if you cannot find it.
