    I don`t know the exact location where to post this but I want to share my experience with the migration from Centos 5 32 bit container to Centos 6 64 bit container.

    It was between containers on the same server.

    I followed the this KB article: http://kb.odin.com/en/2126

    I just want to point to the error in that KB where it says:

    "IMPORTANT: Use the option -d if you migrate from CentOS 5.x to CentOS 6.x or Redhat 5.x to Redhat 6.x:
    ~# hspc-mn-backup -m root@[TMP_IP] –d"

    Now the problem is in the command line which took me few migrations ~2 hours to figure out.
    The correct command line would be:
    "hspc-mn-backup -d -m root@[TMP_IP]"

    If you put -d in the end it gets ignored. I used first few migrations with -f switch and could`t get connection to Plesk domains and just when I thought that I would have to postpone this to some other day I tryed command above and finally after 2 hours everything went OK :)

    Thats my experienece so if anyone from Parallels has access to editing KB please edit the KB so that somebody else will not have the same problems as I did :)
