The password only box requires the admin password as input. I'm assuming you're using a simple setup, not a load balanced one here.
Is your password using a proper password policy (lower case, upper case, numbers and special characters)? If not, one thing to try is reset the admin password to a password which has all those and give it one more try.
When I said I reset the admin password, I used the reset password button in the vidm user manager and used the reset email.
I figured the local admin in the directory was the same admin as the manager appliance, but its not! So there are actually 4 internal accounts I need to keep track of.
Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Ran the admin password change command from ssh and it worked fine.
