vCenter creates local account on each ESXi Host to manage ESXi Host.

vCenter change this accounts password as per password, so no need to worry about it.

This particular message is presented when the password expires for the VirutalCenter user account. This generally will occur every 30 days at which point a new password will be generated and set. These messages are nothing to worry about.
