I want an app that will change all server password for me on a weekly basis (whm and cpanel) and allow for an easy way for admins to get this new password each week. (I want to tighten security).

I use WHM and cPanel. Any suggestions?

If you want to tighten security, then don't share a password among more than one person.

Create new reseller accounts for each admin, with full access and have them use their own account to login.

Then use the chage command on each account to set the warning days and maximum days before a password change is required.

But can WHM have multiple root password? This is specifically for root of a server and more than one admin requires root on a regular basis. –  coderama Dec 7 '11 at 4:53
    
If they need root to carry out WHM type activties then a reseller with maximum permissions can do this. You can also add them to the wheel group to give them sudo permissions. –  Paul Dec 7 '11 at 4:58
