I use PPA moving tools to move subscriptions between nodes, so I run command below:

# /etc/ppa-migrator/ppa-move-subscriptions copy-hosting config.ini

but it fails with the following error:

Exception: Move list file does not exists
[2013-07-16 21:58:49] [ERROR] | Unexpected error: 'Move list file does not exists', migration is aborted. See the traceback above for more information. 


move-list.xml file is missing in session-dir directory.


  1. Find session-dir value from config.ini file:

    ~# grep session-dir /etc/ppa-migrator/config.ini
    session-dir: migration-session
  2. The file should have the move-list.xml name and be located at /etc/ppa-migrator/move-session/ directory.

You may refer to documentation page to find additional information regarding moving subscriptions between nodes.
