    Hello, i would like to move old users from /home to /home2 and also have all new users to be created in /home2.
    But each time i try to move any account to /home2 i get "/boot does not match “home”
    Sorry, there is only one usable partition detected on this machine matching “home”" .
    Does anyone know what i am doing wrong, or did i miss something?

    my home dir prefix is "home"
    (assume ip to storage server is )

    df -kh

    Hello :)

    I suggest first deleting or moving files from this directory to ensure it's not at 100% usage. This will help prevent potential issues that could occur due to a lack of available space when rearranging accounts.

    Please browse to "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and let us know which values you have entered for:

    "Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations. (Leaving this value blank disables the feature.) This option only takes one value."
    "Enter the location where you wish for new users’ home directories to be created."

    Thank you.
