I am trying to set a password for an SSO user account on a vSphere 6.5 PSC. When I enter certain special characters, the password box turns red. The characters I have identified so far are ` @ % ^ & < >. Is there any VMware documentation that specifically addresses what special characters are not allowed?
I found some older KB articles talking about 5.x but nothing for 6.x that covers exclusions.
In vSphere 6.0 and later, non-ASCII characters are supported in passwords. There is no exception policy as such. You may have defined the vCenter Single Sign-on password policy which is not allowing you to enter these characters. For detailed password policy requirements, see page 65, https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.5/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-651-platform-services-cont...
