Error logging into vmware infrastructure client

tips54 asked
Last Modified: 2012-11-08
I have an issue logging into VMware infrastructure client with any of my credentials.  I have previously logged in with the root and admin account in the pass to start my vm's but now when I log in I get the following message:

VMWare Infrastructure Client could not a connection with server xxx.xxx.x.xxx
Details: You do not have permission to login to the server

this issue just started, I have three critical vm's on the server I need to be able to start if the power were to go out right now and I can't.  I have logged in here before just fine. I have restarted the Client management agent on the physical server and I still get the error.  How can go about modifying the accounts without being able to get in?

 Thanks in advance.
