You must assign a password to the accounts that are members of the VxRail management ecosystem.
Use the Appendix B: VxRail Passwords table to use as worksheets for your passwords.
- For ESXi hosts, assign passwords to the root account. You can use one password for each ESXi host or apply the same password to each host.
- For VxRail Manager, assign a password to the root account (Row 1). This credential is for access to the console.
- To access the VxRail Manager web interface, use the administrator@<SSO Domain> credentials.
- If you deploy the VxRail-managed VMware vCenter Server, VxRail Manager and VMware vCenter Server, share the same default administrator login firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter the password that you want to use (Row 2).
- If you use a customer-managed VMware vCenter Server, VxRail Manager uses the same administrator@<SSO Domain> login credentials that you use to access the customer-managed VMware vCenter Server.
- If you deploy the VxRail-managed VMware vCenter Server:
- Enter the root password for the VxRail-managed VMware vCenter Server (Row 3).
- Enter a password for management for the VxRail-managed VMware vCenter Server (Row 4).
- If you deploy VMware vRealize Log Insight:
- Enter a password for root (Row 6).
- Enter a password for admin (Row 7).
Passwords must comply with the following VMware vSphere complexity rules:
- Passwords must contain between eight and 20 characters with at least one lowercase letter.
- One uppercase letter, one numeric character, and one special character.
