VcSA password reset

Jump to solution

Suddenly, my root password for VcSA stopped working. I went to follow the reset procedures, but the issue comes into play that my Vcenter server is virtual (I inherited it this way), so when I do the reboot... I loose access. How can I see the splash screen? Is there another means to keep connection during the reboot?

Can you connect directly to the host that has vcenter running?

Thanks. It took a little thinking to figure that out. I was able to connect to the host and complete the change.
