You can follow the following steps:
A) check /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log for the error when trying to create an account
B) chmod +w passwd,v ( cd /etc)
C) ll /etc/group
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6336 Nov 16 21:40 /etc/group
-rw------- 1 root root 6359 Nov 16 21:39 /etc/group-
D)chattr -i /etc/group
E) mv /etc/gshadow /etc/gsahdow.corrupted
And run grpconv to rebuild the file. You should be able to create accounts now. Please verify that everything is running fine.

One more thing you have to keep in mind is that, if you get the error 'grpconv: can not lock group file. Than you just delete /etc/group.lock, /etc/gshadow.lock and run grpconv.
