this morning i tried logging into one of the hosts at a remote office and it is not working. it is a two host environment so i do not have vcenter installed. i read online the only way to reset this password would be to re-install VMWare is that true? is it as simple as using the booting the host from a thumbdrive with vmware installed? how does reinstalling vmware on top of an existing vmware affect the host? any datastore/vswitch/network changes? what’s weird is my veeam server is able to connect to the server just fine, but keep getting password incorrect when logging in from web interface. i could try a dirty shutdown of the entire host(including vms) but i dont remember if the vms are configured to start with a host bootup.
p.s, in the meantime i am going to use veeam’s quick migration feature to move all of the vms(4) one by one to the other host.
