    The old admin password still works after change

    Hello,
    I change the Plesk admin password, but now, I can access with the old and the new password. How to fix this problem?
    I used SSH and the Panel for the change, but problem persists.

    Have you tried /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/ch_admin_passwd utility?

    Could the second admin user be an SMB user? You can confirm by:

    Code:
    SELECT * FROM  `smb_users`
    NB: Backup that table, and try renaming that admin username record in that table and see if that stops the OLD admin user from logging in ...

    No, I have not solved, and I think that is a important problem for security.
    I hope someone can help. If I find the solution I'll put it here.

    LIttleJohn, look at this article : http://kb.parallels.com/en/114625

    It just solve my problem.
    I had forgotten that I had enabled CMB someday.
    Returning to the CMB panel (https://your_domain.com:8443/plesk-billing/admin/) I deleted the admin who had the same old password, and now it is no longer active either in the plesk panel!
    I hope it will be the same solution for you!
    Excuse me for my broken English.

    Jerome
