You have to re-install ESXi is the safest way to set the new password.You can use vendor customized base image and then you can update It.Nawals1 person found this helpful
I've reinstalled it three times, but they all installed the same way. I'll try a vendor customized image or try and get a base 6.7 iso...
In order to install ESXi on a DL380 Gen10 host, you need the HPE custom image which includes the required drivers.
How did you ceate the USB stick? Rufus usually does a good job.
Note that in case you have an iLO Advanced license, you can attach the ISO image as a virtual media, and install ESXi from the iLO remote console.
I just created a bootable usb with rufus using the latest HPE custom 6.7U3 iso but on boot, it came up with an error, "menu.c32: not a COM32R image". Yeah I don't have the advanced iLO..unless I try the onboard iLO "Assisted install" setup and try booting from usb there...
Why you need to create bootable as HP customized image already bootable iso. You can connect the host via ILO and mount the image and reboot to start installation.Nawals
Yes, well I created a bootable usb using the HPE Custom ISO. I was able to install it on the server and it allowed me to go through and configure the install and create the root pwd, etc..
I'm good now.
Thanks for your help!!
