    Hi,
    Is it possible to somehow stop the transfer tool from updating DNS.

    We just want to transfer the account first, check it out and then manually edit the DNS to point to the new server IP. We do not want any automated changes in the DNS.

    Are there any settings I have missed?

    Why not backup the account to the new server and restore it from there instead of using the transfer tool?

    Thanks for the reply

    Yes, that is an option, but transfers are done on a regular basis by a number of people and having the checkbox "don't update the DNS" the same way as for new accounts would be much better. (think it is now the other way around with "overwrite dns" checkbox at create).

    Most times this is not an issue since we do not run nameservers on most of our cpanel servers so transfers will not update any dns that is actually used but for a number of servers we still use the cpanel nameserver.
