If you used a self-signed cert, it's possible your browser session expired for the length of time it accepts those sessions. You then tried to submit a logon token which was invalid and it ended up locking out your account. It's impossible to know in this circumstance, but this is likely.
Where could I check these things?
You really can't at this point. Is this a huge deal if it was a singular occurrence?
no-not really. Just the newbe ESXI IT guy talking.
I appreciate the help
