Hello @linux1971

Welcome to Communities - in future, please take the 5 seconds needed to use google translate/search.

No, you cannot change ESXi root password if it has been lost, you must reinstall ESXi:

Additional steps required if vSAN is enabled:

As already mentioned, the only officially supported method to reset a root password on a standalone ESXi host is to reinstall it.

However, if the host is managed by vCenter Server there are other methods available, see e.g. https://www.vladan.fr/how-to-reset-esxi-root-password-via-microsoft-ad/
