vROPS 8 Upgrade Bug?

I have run into the below error in both my lab and production environments when running the assessment tool. It's not clear what is failing on the checks. I did open a support case this morning but wanted to also post here...

Same here, 2 node cluster, predeployment report said my admin password was locked or expired (not sure how since it was still working normally) but decided to change the admin password via the UI, tested it all ok.

Issue is the root account password was older and not the same so had the exact same failure at step 4 of 9 (waited overnight).

Finally tried resetting the root account password to match and bingo.

P.S. each time I restarted the process by reverting to the snapshot.

earlier when i received same Error, i changed only root password, it did not work, later i tried  changing  both "root" & "admin" installation went smoothly.

thanks for your post..

we need to change for both  "root" password & "admin" password.

login to VROPS #passwd  (this will ask to change root password )

#passwd admin (this will ask to change Admin password)
