Hi,

I am getting following error while changing the root password from WHM:

====================
Results of Password Change

The password for 'root' could not be changed because: Sorry, the user root is currently suspended. Changing the user's password would unsuspend the account.
=====================

The weird thing is that I am able to login in WHM using root user but I am not able to reset the password.

I am using cPanel 11.24.4-R33609 - WHM 11.24.2.

Any help would be appreciated!
