    A few months ago I transferred some accounts from one server to the other.

    Only now have I noticed that for all accounts that were transferred, the data in /var/cpanel/users/ lists the old server's IP for the accounts that were transferred. Unsurprisingly, all accounts created on the new server have the correct IP address.

    Firstly, does anyone know why it might not be safe to change all the incorrect IP addresses to the correct IP addresses?

    Secondly, does anyone know what the IP address listed for each user in /var/cpanel/users/ is actually used for? When listing accounts in WHM, the correct IPs are listed and from each user's cPanel, the correct IP is also listed. Furthermore, since such IP addresses have been incorrectly listed for some months and no problems whatsoever have occurred as a result of this, do the IP addresses listed in /var/cpanel/users/ serve any purpose at all?

    The IP field is not used anymore.

    Thanks for confirming this Nick.

    I've been hunting around all over the place for any reference to the IP field and was totally stumped!
