Try to change transport method from "HTTPS" to "Samba" in following configs:

  • on source Helm3 server in PleskMigrationAgent\WINAgentMng.exe.config

  • on target Plesk server in "%plesk_dir%\PMM\Migration\migrmng.exe.config"

change default

<add key="Transport" value="HTTPS" />


<add key="Transport" value="Samba" />
