As a workaround perform the following:
- Connect to the server via RDP.
- Create a full configuration backup of the server using the following command:
C:\> "%plesk_cli%\pleskbackup" --server -c -v -output-file="C:\server_config"
Create server's backup with the option "backup only hosting":
C:\> "%plesk_cli%\pleskbackup" --server -only-hosting -v -output-file="C:\server_hosting"
Copy server_config.zip and server_hosting.zip files to destination server;
Restore server_config.zip on destination server using the following command:
C:\> "%plesk_cli%\pleskrestore" --restore "C:\server_config.zip" -ignore-sign -level server
Note: server_config.zip can be also uploaded and restored under Plesk > Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Upload
Restore backup server_hosting.zip using the following command:
C:\>"%plesk_cli%\pleskrestore" --restore "C:\server_hosting.zip" -ignore-sign -level server
Migrate data without mail content from the source server by performing the following on the target: Plesk > Tools & Settings > Migration & Transfer Manager > Start a New Migration > feel required fields > uncheck "Migrate mail messages" option > Migrate.
