How to check migration status?


If you think that the migration is stuck, you can check the logs in the migration session directory. The session directory is located within the /usr/local/psa/var/modules/panel-migrator/sessions/%session_id%/ directory on the target server.

Here are the most important log files:

info.log - Here you can find almost all necessary information about the migration, in brief.

debug.log - You may refer to this log file to get very detailed information about the migration.

progress - This file represents the current migration progress in a table view.

If the migration is on the “restore” step, you need to check the migration.log log, which is located in the /usr/local/psa/PMM/rsessions/%PMM_SESSION_ID%/directory on the target server, where YYYY-mm-dd-HH-MM-SS is the date and time when the restoration process was started, and nnn is a random number. There will be a separate restore session for each subscription.

Note that migration of a big domain or a significant number of mailboxes may take several hours. In such cases, you might see no changes in the log files, but continually decreasing free disk space on your drive will indicate that the process is running. If you see no changes in the aforementioned files for hours and no changes on the file system/mailboxes, it is likely that the migration process got hung up.

You can restart migration using the following article:
