Virtual Domain migration Fails on non standard SSH port

Hi guys,

I wanted to report that in Cloudmin 5.8, when a virtual domain is transferred directly from one Xen Server to another and the SSH Port is specified in the Xen Server's Authentication area as non standard port, the standard port is still being used to make the transfer connection and fails. Wow my English teachers would disown me for that sentence...

Anyways, I have attached the images.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!


Closed (fixed)


An interesting follow up. I have modified the port to 22 on the transfer-to target host and get further. However, now I received a message in Cloudmin that Gunzip does not exist on the system... When I run "which gunzip" it displays /bin/gunzip on the transfer-to target host system.


That's odd, as Cloudmin has code to use the correct SSH port for transfers in this case.

Have you tried upgrading to version 5.9?

Also, what status is shown on the left menu when you select the destination host?

Hi Jamie,

I upgraded to 5.9 but still experiencing the issue for the non standard SSH port during a move of a virtual machine.

I have attached an image showing the Target Systems Status on the left.

The Gunzip issue went away after upgrading.



Ok, I see the cause of the problem now - Cloudmin was putting the SSH port in the wrong place in the backup command!

I will fix this in the 6.0 release .. or let me know if you'd like a pre-release patch.

Hi Jamie,

I would love the patch, what file should I edit and where : ).



Ok, just save the attached file as /usr/libexec/webmin/server-manager/ , then run /etc/webmin/restart
