    Yes, please see here:

    "The migration tool helps you to import data from other control panels (currently ISPConfig 2 and 3 – 3.1, Plesk 10 – 12.5 and Confixx 3) into a new ISPConfig 3 or ISPConfig 3.1 single- or multiserver installation."

    Just to be sure ...
    Does the migration tool change or delete any data on the source server?
    If migration fails, I still have the full functional source server as was before migration? ok?
    If migration will finished OK, I should have two identical server (excl. IP and name). ok?

    Depends on how you define identical. The migration tool imports the websites, mail accounts etc. into the new server. So clients, websites, databases, mail domains, mail accounts, dns records etc. will be transferred.

    There is no bug in the migration script here, the VAT ID field is for European VT ID's an get's validated against the european vat ID database, you can not enter local vat ID's there any current ISPConfig version and not the migration tool rejected the ID, the id's were rejected by ISPConfig.

    The mysqldump command does not dumped any data. No errors occured.
    I run it manually and I have seen that dump file contains just head info.
    Please see this ...
    root@webmail:~# mysqldump -cCQ --triggers --routines --quote-names --hex-blob -h ip.ip.ip.ip -u 75c0676f9dfcfd36 -p'********' c25_katerinadb
    -- MySQL dump 10.16 Distrib 10.1.26-MariaDB, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64)
    -- Host: ip.ip.ip.ip Database: c25_katerinadb
    -- ------------------------------------------------------
    -- Server version 5.1.73-1+deb6u1-log

    /*!40101 SET NAMES utf8mb4 */;
    /*!40103 SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE */;
    /*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00' */;
    /*!40111 SET @OLD_SQL_NOTES=@@SQL_NOTES, SQL_NOTES=0 */;

    Does someone have any idea where can be a problem?

    You run the command on the old server, right? Did you check with phpmyadmin there there is data in the database c25_katerinadb ?

    If you have any problems with the migration tool, then please contact the migration tool support here:

    I ran the command on new (target) server. I copied it from migration command bash script, so it was exactly same as migration script generated/used. Of course the database contains tables and data. The migration script does the same probem for all databases.
    I ran the command on old (source) server used mysql root access and it exported DB right.
    I am going contact the ISPConfig support team.
    THX for your time and cooperartion.

    Solution is add " --default-character-set=utf8" into the mysqldump command.
