We have 5 hosts (5.5) with one virtual server appliance.
- all 5 hosts have same root password
- virtual server appliance has the same password as the hosts
From the KB I am reading and gathering what I read. Please confirm the following steps.
- Log into each host via ssh and reset each individual host.
passwd "my new password"
- Then log into VSA and reset the the "administrator" account (basically the VSA administrator account is the same as the vCenter)
Thanks for reading
