I'm installing EsXi on a gen10 HPE, I'm goin' crazy!!! everything goes well but when I have to reboot the machine I have to enter the root password.
Into the guide I read password is myp@ssw0rd ... bytheway it doesn't works... I've tried even with mypassword... (wrong password).
Password is into ks.cfg boot mode... I don't know how to read it.
does anyone know the right password I've to enter to reboot the machine ?
Thank in advance for any info about this.
How do you install ESXi on the host? Using HPE's Intelligent Provisioning?
I usually simply boot off the customized CD/ISO and run the installation in interactive mode, which prompts to enter a root password.
The default password for EXSi 6.x and 7.x is _Passw0rd_
I just used Intelligent Provisioning to install ESXi 7.02 with the HPE custom ISO image, and had to look it up. This worked for me. Thought I'd share.
