Hello,

my new server IP is "X". And I have a secondary IP "Y".

When I transfer between servers, cPanel sets "Y" as the account IP. And I have to change the IP address to "X".

But I'll migrate >90 accounts. Since I will not change the DNS servers until move all accounts (I can migrate about 10 accounts per day):

- cPanel will transfer and set "Y" in the old server DNS zones
- I'll manually change "Y" to "X" in the new server
- PROBLEM: I need to manually edit all DNS zones in the old server, all records, from "Y" to "X".

How can I specify "X" as the destination IP before cPanel transfer and change the DNS zones in the old server? Or any other ideas?

Thank you.

Hey there! There isn't a way to do this currently, so our best recommendation at this time is to perform the transfer and then update the IP address of the account on the Destination machine. If you don't want the DNS records to change on the Source machine you would just need to disable the Live Transfer or Express Transfer option, and then no data gets routed to the Destination server from the Source automatically.

There isn't a way to specify the IP address that gets used during the transfer as the Transfer Tool will place all the domains on the primary IP. I wouldn't expect them to be set up on the secondary IP as that isn't the standard behavior.
