I have a freshly installed ESXi system (6.5.0a from 2017-02-02). I cannot login today to it using password. Both web gui (web vSphere) and ssh with password authentication does not work.
Error from web gui:
Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.
I configured a ssh pub key auth, which is still works fine, so I still have root access to the console over ssh. I tried to change the password using "passwd root" several times. I rebooted the host, but the neither web gui, nor ssh with password authentication works.
Is there anything else I can try to restore the access to ESXi host?
