For VDP troubleshooting I have to access the 6.1 appliance with a FTP client. I can log in to the appliance as ROOT with the VDP GUI, root user password does not work with FTP client. What am I missing or doing wrong?
Enable Root access in sshd.conf for CLI/FTP
Enable SSH Root Login for vSphere Data Protection - VMware vSphere Blog

Best thing at this point is to throw VDP in the trash and get something that is halfway decent. It's been EoA for a while and is all but abandoned.
