stderr: Wrong syntax for command’s ‘-passwd’ parameter. Validation failed. The password does not meet password policy requirements because it is too short.
- Minimum password length greater than 10 characters in Local Security Policy > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy on destination server
- Password of system user john of example.com on the source server is greater than 10 characters.
During migration Plesk migrator generates a temporary password for system user equal to 10 characters that is shorter then allowed by Password Policy on destination server. It’s a bug PMT-4663 that will be fixed in further Plesk Migrator updates.
As a workaround Login to the destination server via RDP and decrease Minimum password length to 10 or less characters in Local Security Policy > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy. It ca be increased back after migration.
