ESX server - login

I have installed VM on an XP machine. To logon, I  go to Start, All Programs, VMWare, VMWare Web Access, Web Access. For some reason my Idea and pass is not correct. Is there any way to reset my ID/Pass?

Thanks!

Have you tried with the vSphere Client?

The steps didn't help me ...  for loggging I go to Start ... All Programs ... VMWare ...VMWare Web Access ... Web Access ... this brings up the browser with "VMWare Infrastructure Web Access" dialog box that I need to enter the Login Name and Password....

So if anyone knows how to reset the pass for the above process it will be appreciated...

The vSphere client still exist also on a standalone installation.

Is the client to manage it.

What version of ESX are you using?

Note: If your using ESXI then it wont support web access.,

use this link http://esxservername and enter

download vsphere client

install vsphere client

and login with vsphere client to esx host.
