Unable to login to newly deployed Nexus 1000v switch.  Password was written down during successful installation using OVF Template.  When trying to login using Console in vSphere I get an error message, "Login incorrect".  I am 100% sure, I have the right password that I supplied during the installation.  I am not sure what the username may be.  I have been trying to use the username, "admin".  Need assistance in logging into the switch.  Switch is not in production.

Here are the Cisco Instructions for password recovery for a 1000v:

As for why it is failing now, how is aaa setup on the switch? Can you post a scrubbed config?

I ended up deleting the VSM from disk and re-deploying.  I was able to login after the re-deployment.
