Since 2 months I have post a question about Vmware ESXi Password issue, that I have change the password and login with it one time but when I log off I cannot log on again !
but when I restart the system and try to log on again thats work !!!! just one time , once disconnect and try to connect again the password don't work!
It's same password
any solution for that issue ??
How are you trying to connect the ESXi? Is it through SSH or DCUi ?
If SSH/DCUI, are these services enabled on the box? Also is there any firewall rule which is blocking these ports?
I guess you havent enabled lock down mode also. Please check on these points!
thank you for your reply,
I don't use SSH (so I disable it), I try to connect using DCUi and Web interaface !
what you mean with Lock down mode ! probably this point cause I don't check this point! could you explain sir!
Make sure ESXi Shell is enabled under Troubleshooting Mode Options. Also check whether there is any timeout set for ESXi Shell access.(Troubleshooting Mode Options-> Modify ESXi Shell and SSH timeouts)
Also these might be helpful for you.
For lockdown mode, please read on this: Lockdown Mode
thank you for your reply and your support,
after checking what is Lockdown Mode, Im' sure it's desabled cause I have access thraught web browser.
the issue is not on that I think, I think another probelm or bug with the password, it's work only one time (traught web browser or DCUi).
@Iboukaya Check for timeout set for ESXi shell from DCUI . Troubleshooting Mode Options-> Modify ESXi Shell and SSH timeouts.
Hi lboukaya ,
Sure , Please find the steps below which I did .Hope It will help you .
You must restart the SSH service and the ESXi Shell service for the timeout to take effect.
