Another issue with the transfer tool is skipping files owned by "nobody." I migrated three servers the past two weeks and numerous files were skipped. I now have to rsync each account after transferring it just to make sure all files were transferred.

This is an issue with permissions and or ownership of files within the affected account; please create a ticket if you need assistance with diagnosing and troubleshooting why a specific file or directory might be skipped.
