    Docs say once this is done it will force the user to change their pwd, I've tried this on a test account and I get the "success" but when I login to the test account it lets me in fine and doesn't require me to change my pwd.

    Yes I've tried this, I get the success after I submit but I can log directly in afterwards and it doesn't force me to change my password. Any suggestions?

    Make sure you're logging in as the cPanel user with his credentials, not root or Resellers password. You might try another browser or clear your browser cache as well.
