Change NSX-T Manager root password

Hi,

On NSX-T manager root password has expired. I successfuly reset the password via vmware console.

Now I have a problem that I can't change my root password. I used the procedure bellow.

  1. SSH to NSX-T Manager with admin user
  2. st e (login to root)
  3. passwd
  4. root password successfuly changed
  5. sync
  6. reboot -f

Now when  want to log in whit new root password, my login does not work. Login with reset password works normaly.

How can I change the root password?

Hi Sreec,

I have already successfuly reset root password, now I want to change password with more complex password, because this is not possible across the console and I may be wrong.
