Hello,

I have 3 cPanel servers and I use FTP backup option to a 4th server.

One of the cPanel servers crashed and I want to restore the user backups to one of the other two servers. How do I do that?

Let's say srv1 crashed.

I tried in srv2's WHM to enter in the backup configuration the srv1's username/pass for FTP backup, I went to restore but couldn't find the srv1's usernames to restore.

Any idea how to do this?

if I understand your answer, you are using scp to copy from teh backup of the other server to this server to then do the restore?

not realy unless you need to. thats just the copy comand from one server to another

I keep backups on different servers have set up on a daily cron you never know when a server just might decide to self destruct

I don't understand what a "dns clustered restore" is.

I have tried just running restore but it must not be looking on the remote server for the list of possible accounts to restore, but only the local machine. I seem to recall seeing some way to do that, but I don't know now.
