Do not make changes directly to userdata files on a linked Mail Node server. These changes could cause the servers to become out of sync and is not supported.
cPanel & WHM version 88 added support for the following:
- Support for transfers to and from a server with attached nodes.
- Provide the ability to back up accounts with data from all of your server nodes.
- Preserve a node setting when you transfer an account from one server to another.
