    VCSA 6.7 Can't Update Root Password?

    wsanders11 Novice

      I am doing an initial install of VCSA 6.7 on a standalone ESXI host.

       

      The appliance came up but it did not accept the password I entered during the OVA customization process. "root/vmware" did not work either.

       

      I booted Photon to GRUB and got a shell, then entered a new root password in the shell. The host accepts my new password but after a reboot the password change did not "stick".

       

      How do I recover or change the root password for the 6.7 VCSA?
