How to limitate shells?

    I have just a short question.
    I want to limit the shell selection in Plesk 8.6. So that admin could only select scponlyc as a valid shell. All other shells includng the chrooted bash etc, should be marked as non selectable, invisible or should link to scponlyc.

    Anyone has a clue how to do this?

    Best regards

    The admin can do anything (including running commands as root). You cannot limit admin's powers.

    i already fixed it. i run a script on phosting update, so the shell of any user with shell != scponlyc will set up a scponlyc shell and usermod to this shell, /bin/false will remove the chroot env and set the shell to /bin/false

    little dirty fix, but it isn't the first for plesk -.-

    thanks anyway
