Guest Introspection VM Console default username and password

Hi,

I am using NSX 6.2.4 and when deploying Guest Introspection I chose DHCP as my hosts are in different subnets. After the successful deployment I want now to manually change the IP address of each Guest Introspection VM

The issue I have is that when connecting through console to the Guest Introspection VM it shows "localhost.localdom login:" and I have tried all kind of passwords but  they don't work.

Do you know what's the default username and password?

Thanks a lot!

Regards,

JJBN

Not sure if this can be achieved via REST API.

You have deployed using DHCP and let say you managed to manually change the IP address of the GI VMs

if something goes wrong to the GI VMs (e.g. accidentally deleted, orphaned, etc) it will be automatically redeployed using the previous settings which is DHCP

and if you need to add new ESXi hosts, the new hosts will use DHCP too.

So I would redeploy the GI VMs and use new settings with IP pool on the desired IP address range

Modifying settings on Guest Introspection VM is not a recommended practice as you can encounter unforeseen issues. You will have to install GI again.
