    When I force an account to reset their password on next login, Cpanel always throws the error "The new password fields don't match. Please retry.". I have tried this on a number of domains w/ the same result. Haven't had luck finding others w/ this problem on the forums, but maybe someone has seen it...? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Have you tried clearing your cache or another browser to troubleshoot?

    Strange. I suggest a ticket to the great cPanel Support team, next stop then.

    From WHM left menu > Support > Support Center > Contact cPanel.

    Or take a shortcut for this one as it does sound like a bug to me: http://go.cpanel.net/bugs

    Is anything showing up in the error log when you try this?

    Code:
    tail -fn0 /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log
    Also, please always report the version being used whenever possible:

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version ;echo
