    Had to do an OS reload today
    Reinstalled cpanel. (release tree)

    When restoring some of the accounts from the backups I get the following

    Account Restore Complete Unlocking password for user xxxxx. passwd: Unsafe operation (use -f to force).

    Now the account otherwise appears to restore ok (I.e site is accessable, sql works.etc) However the user then cannot login to cpanel also the account shows as suspended (although if I try unsuspend, it STILL thinks its suspeneded)

    I'm guessing what it's basically saying is cpanel couldn't update the users password in /etc/passwd

    Is there anyway to solve this apart from manually resetting the password on the affected accounts? (That does work but i was hopeing of a way to solve them all at once)

    OS is centos 5 x64.

    Well the list suspended accounts is basically showing the ones where the password got corrupted so It looks like at the very least I can manually reset them (makes em disspear for the list and fixes the login for that account)
