possible to move accounts without moving actual homedir?


Mar 18, 2008
hello, i am running a 3 tier setup, DB, WEB, FILE server. Currently the WEB server is running whm/cpanel and /home is a mount to a NFS server located on the file server. In other words when i make accounts in whm it makes them on the file server instead of local. Currently i am in the process of getting a new webserver to replace the current one. My question is what would be the best way to transfer the accounts without actually moving the homedir files. Like is there a way to just move the account settings?

I can try to manually create the accounts in whm on the new server but it will most likely give me an error that the user already exists.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
