    I guess you missed to move over the web* users and client* groups to the new server. I described the procedure on how to move a ispconfig install in several threads in the forum.

    The esync recreated the missing users. The drawback compared with the method that I suggested is that it can be that all website content is now owned by wron users as the resync on a system were the users are missing might result in uid changes.

    moveing web* and Client*

    When you mention moving web* user and client* group on /etc/shadow, /etc/gshadow.. what you mean only the lines with web* and client* ... are you saying to jyst manuall type it in on the new server file or what ???

    Normally you copy them just over, open the files on both servers, then copy the lines from old server and paste them to the enw one. so even with a few hundred websites, this takes less then 5 minutes for all 4 files.
