Password expiration notification using email for "administrator@vsphere.local"

Hi Teams,

How we can get an email notification vCenter Server of "administrator@vsphere.local" password expiration notification via email? I have set and email address on the 'administrator@vsphere.local' but not getting mail notification.It's only notification on VC bar once i'm login.

Mail notification only working for OS "root".

I am not 100% sure but I think it looks like that:

By default, vCenter SSO users password expire after 90 days, but administrator passwords such as the password for administrator@vsphere.local do not expire.

Hi Koc

I know the setting is 90 days and administrator@vsphere.local not expired.

How about if i create a new local user something like "used01@vsphere.local".

I have test and it's expired, my question how I enable the notification via email instead of pop-up in the top bar once this id log-in.

Now I understand but unfortunately I don't know how do it Smiley Happy.

When you create local users, they have email value. Did you try to fill in this value, configure SMTP Server on vCenter and catch some event by vCenter Alarm or SNMP trap?

If it is possible to catch such event by SNMP, you could send email notification by external system.

Unfortunately, I don't have possibilities to test it Smiley Sad

I do not think this is possible for the vCenter SSO users. However, you can still reset the password expiration settings to a longer period to avoid expirations.
