Notes:

 

 

Things to note for IDPA 2.2 version :       
       
        1: A Random password gets assigned for ESXI and vCenter root user upon deployment. Therefore in order to login to ESXI Host and vCenter Server using 'root' user , we need to decrypt the password. Customers can login using 'idpauser' account and the common password.        
        2: If we attempt to login to the ESXI Host using wrong password for root user, the root gets locked after 3 unsuccessful attempts. It will then not let you login even with correct password until it is reset/unlocked. Please follow the below procedure to unlock 'root' user on ESXI host.  Procedure to Unlock ESXI Root User.        
        3: After an upgrade to version 2.3, IDPA ESXI and vCenter root passwords change from random password to IDPA common password automatically as per the Upgrade workflow.
