Whatever you created when installing ESXi...see pg. 38 of the install guide. It should've asked you for the pwd to enter.

Gosh...scratch that, too...that's' ESX. If you need to reset for ESXi, the only way to reset it is to reinsatll ESXi. You can save your host configs using vCLI though (or just document them). Sorry about the confusion...ugh.

Hi

If you did not choose any password for root(admin user), it will be blank.
