DISABLE THAT PASSWORD EXPIRATION SETTING!

In my lab I wanted to login to the vCenter Server however my root password didn’t let me in. Now I was logging into the administrator portal at port 5480.

vcenter-lockout

I looked around and turns out I left my “Administrator password reset” option enabled which caused my root password to be reset/disabled.

The fix was easy enough but needed a vCenter reboot. You can try to console into it and try to change it but it was buggy.

Here is the KB article to reset the password.

Hope this helps!
