    ESXi 4.1 authentication bug?

    nirvy Master

       

      Hi all

       

       

      It seems that authentication only requires the first 8 characters to be correct.  My root password is 11 characters long, but so long as the first 8 characters are correct, I can put whatever I like after that and it still authenticates me.  Tested this on three ESXi boxes, all running 260247 (release)

       

       

      It works (so far) on Local tech support login, and when adding host to vCenter inventory.  Have not tested with ESX

       

       

      Is this normal?
