Validating migration file .. .. validation failed

I am trying to Migrate Virtual Server from cpanel Version cPanel 11.30.5 (build 2) but i am receiving this error:

Validating migration file .. .. validation failed : Not a cPanel tar.gz file : Un-archive command failed : /bin/tar: backup-11.24.2011_21-01-00_XXXX/mysql/XXXX_wp657.sql: Wrote only 3072 of 10240 bytes /bin/tar: Skipping to next header /bin/tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers /bin/tar: backup-11.24.2011_21-01-00_XXXX/homedir.tar: Wrote only 3584 of 10240 bytes /bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I run in terminal: file backup_file..

backup-11.24.2011_21-01-00_XXX.tar.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Nov 25 06:01:31 2011


It looks like there's a problem with your cPanel backup. When using tar to open up the archive, errors are being generated -- and that's preventing Virtualmin from being able to import your cPanel backup.

My recommendation would be to regenerate your backup file, and to re-attempt to importing the backup.


I try 5 times... regenerate and migrate... but dont working....

I change the location of tmp folder... but dont working...



Well, I'm not certain of the cause of the corruption you're seeing, but determining that is probably where you need to focus your troubleshooting.

If you manually untar your archive from the command line, do you see errors and warnings then too? You can manually untar it with this command:

tar zxvf filename.tar.gz

I execute the comand tar zxvf filename.tar.gz and working fine...

extract all files, have onde homedit.tar too
