When I try to login with root by ssh to appliance it works fine.
However, when I try to login with root to https://ip_appliance:5480 it doesn't work.
I receivce the following error:
Unable to authenticate user. Please try again.
How can I resolve this problem?

Login in Console of appliance using root account.
Type following command.
chage -M root 99999
try to then go to VAMI (5480) and login using root account.

Aging information not changed.

I have faced this issue multiple times with Suse Linux based virtual Appliances offered by VMware. almost in all the cases that command worked.
did you try running command using 'sudo'?
see if that helps.
