In a large ESXi environment what do people do around the root ESXi account
Do you have the same root pswd on all your ESXi hosts?
Do you change the root pswd monthly, yearly?
From looking around it seems you can change the root pswd without any impact as well. Can someone please confirm this?
The best practice to set all ESXi host be in same password.
You can change it in every 6 months. You will achieve this by logging in to vcenter and change password, connect to individual ESXi host using ssh, also using a script.
