How to change ESXI root password inside vCenter

Hey guys I have a single vCenter server with 3 hosts connected to it on lockdown mode.

How can I periodically change the root password of each host straight from vcenter?
I haven't seen the option or I might have missed it.

Thanks in advance,

Teo

Create a hostprofile specific to change the root password then apply to the host in questioned

Not possible via vCenter but can be achieved via the SDDC Manager
