    I an having issues transfering multiple accounts to other servers.

    I am trying to copy about 300 accounts to 2 new servers. The 3 servers are in the same VLAN for this migration.

    My plan was to:

    1. copy accounts.
    2. assign old server ip's over the 2 new servers
    3. unplug old server after a few days
    4. happy migration!

    Well, this was a did not go like planned.

    I copied about 150 accounts to 1 server now and just saw that the 150 accounts all had the new ip from the new server and also the same IP in the zone files!

    This was not intended?!

    I wanted to copy the accounts, migrate ip's and everything could stay the same, i never wanted to change zone files? Why did this happen? :(

    Now all the accounts are already active on the new server since all zones are changed :(

    Since multiple accounts have their own dedicated ip (on old server) they now resolve to the new main server ip...

    I dont want this migration to take ages, i tought maybe 3 days max...

    Does anyone know how i can undo these zone file changes? Since the old ip's will be migrated too and there is no need to edit zone files.
