Migration from Confixx to Plesk 12.5 : Error Option -passwd requires parameters

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.5 for Linux
  • Plesk 11.x for Linux

Symptoms

The following error appears during migration from Confixx to Plesk 12.5 using Plesk MIgrator:

| `- Auxiliary user 'user@domain.tld'

| `- error: Failed to create auxiliary user on target panel. After migration customer won't be able to login with 'user@domain.tld' login to the panel.
| Command execution failed on the local server with non-zero exit code.
| command: /opt/psa/bin/user --create user@domain.tld -cname '' -role 'Application User' -passwd '***hidden***' -company '' -phone '' -fax '' -address '' -city '' -state '' -zip '' -country '' -im '' -im-type '' -comment '' -status enabled -email user@domain.tld -owner user -subscription-name user@domain.tld -external-email true
| exit code: 1
| stdout:
| stderr: Option -passwd requires parameters

Cause

This is an internal issue in Plesk Migrator version 1.8.5 with ID #PMT-2682 , which has been fixed in the next Plesk Migrator version.

Resolution

Install the latest Plesk Migrator version:

  1. Remove Plesk Migrator using Updates and Upgrades menu or Plesk Installer.

  2. Install Plesk migrator anew

Workaround

Replace string 223 in /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/modules/panel-migrator/backend/lib/python/parallels/plesk/source/confixx/extras/pmm/Agent.pm file on the destination server with the following line:

my $result = join('', map {$chars[rand @chars]} 1..$length);

In case passwords are not migrated, change passwords manually or switch off password encrypting on the Confixx server, because Plesk has different authentication method which is not compatible with the encrypted Confixx passwords.
