Unable to login to Nexus 1000v Switch after deployment

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.

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

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?
