ESX Password Change

Was using VMware vSphere Client to log into my ESX machine with the default password (nothing) and userid of root.  At the console, I changed the password but now when I try logging into my ESX machine with VMware vSphere Client using root and the new password, it says incorrect username or password.  Is it necessary to restart some ESX tasks????

I believe you need to restart the management services

Sounds like your password is cached. You can try this:

Thank you very much for your swift replies.  Turns out it was me and the infamous Caps-Lock.  Once I realized that and reentered the password correctly, everything worked as it should.

Thanks again!
