    WHM 11.1.0 cPanel 11.4.2-C13496
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.5 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    Cannot create a new account. After trying to add, the group is written to /etc/group and /etc/gshadow, but no other files have been updated - at least in /etc.

    Info on screen:

    Waiting 100 seconds for accounting lock... Waiting 10 seconds for accounting lock...

    Result:

    Account Creation Status: failed (Unable to add group injury)

    Unable to add group injury

    Error log:

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log:

    Cpanel::IxHash: Warning, mangling data key msel which is longer then 64 bytes, using angle_bracket_encode
    Cpanel::IxHash: at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 3136

    Hope this is enough info.

    Thank you

    Issue resolved

    From cpanel support: "The problem was that you had nscd installed". The techs took care of it for me, so I am unaware if there were any other issues dealt with. Hope removing nscd works for you!

    ok that is crazy, I've been on this problem for hours now and had to register on this site to find the answer. Stopping the name-service caching daemon (nscd) did it for me, I'd be interested to know how that is related to the account creation script. I tried it both in WHM and the command-line version in /scripts and neither produced any useful error messages indicating NSCD. Nothing in /var/log either.
