    ESXi Password Policy

    Masi45673 Novice

      Hello Folks,

       

      Currently I'm setting a Password policy on our ESXi host 6.7, however I'm unable to find the setting that a password history of at least 4 is being retained. Is there any specific syntax or parameter to add in the policy policy. Currently, I have "retry=3min=disabled,disabled,16,7,7". Any suggestions please. Thanks!

          Looks like this advanced option is only available in vSphere 7.0.

           

          Security.PasswordHistory. Number of passwords to remember for each user. Zero disables password history.

          ESXi Passwords and Account Lockout

           

          I don't see it on the 6.7 documentation: ESXi Passwords and Account Lockout

            I found this option in 6.7 as well.

              Good to know. I will try to get this updated on the documentation too.
