- Plesk Onyx
Migration fails with:
PLESK_ERROR: Migration tools tried to perform operation in 3 attempts: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 63: ordinal not in range(128)
It is caused by a bug in the product with id #PMT-4578 which is planned to be fixed in future Plesk updates.

As a workaround:
Migrate the Domain using the Backup and Restore function or Site Import tool.
Log into Plesk on the Source server
Go to Subscription > example.com > Backup Mananger > Back Up
Do a Full backup
Go to Subscription > example.com > Backup Mananger
Dowload the backup and upload it on the Target Server (Via FTP, Rsync, SCP, etc.)
Connect to the server via SSH on the target server
Restore there the backup
# plesk bin pleskrestore --restore "path/backup_info_<date>.xml.tar" -ignore-sign -verbose -level domains
