VMware vcenter unable to login

Hello EE,

I have a vcenter instance and it returns "Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password." when attempting to login as root. I checked with the team here and nobody has changed the root password ( or has admitted to changing it) . I tried rebooting the instance to correct any ldap service or such , however I receive the same problem. Same issue when attempting from console or the web interface.

What are my options at this point ?

I have not tried rebooting the host .

vCenter root password expires in 90 days in the version 5.5.
If you need to enable it or unlock it you will need to follow the below KB Article.
