Unable to change password

    I have installed Plesk 9.3 in CentOS/RedHat Linux 5.

    As I need to setup on RedHat cluster, I have copy all files under /etc/psa to a shared directory /shared/etcpsa and created a soft link under /etc

    ln -s /shared/etcpsa psa

    All login and admin functions are running properly. However I cannot change the admin password through Plesk admin page and get the following errors :

    "copy_file failed: copy_file: System Error: invalid file paths in /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/copy_file /usr/local/psa/tmp/nsfjqYC7g /etc/psa/.psa.shadow:"

    I can manually change admin password by changing the mysql admin password and put this password into /etc/psa/.psa.shadow.
    However, what is the function of copy_file. I guess that it create a tmp file under tmp and copy it to /etc/psa/.psa.shadow. I have checked all file security.

    How to solve it?
