center access, howto?

I have two ESX hosts and I can access each using the sphere client and I have a username with root and admin access.

I say all of this to make it clear that I can manage these two sex hosts.

I also have a vcenter server installed.  I do not know the root password for that vcenter server install.

Do I need to wipe it out or is there a way from the client to get into the vcenter install and add/edit users?

What version of vCenter Server ?

Do you know the Administrator, SSO username and password for vCenter Server ?

Have you tried to use the vSphere Client to connect to the vCenter Server ?

If you do not know, the username and/or passwords, you will need to re-install vCenter Server ?

Have you tried the local administrator username and password of the Windows Server ?

No, I do not.  I most likely will by Monday.  We took over from another IT company and they are supposed to give us passwords Monday.

The client says I do not have permissions.  The account I'm using is a copy of the old IT companies AD account.  

I have.  I CAN access my two hosts with the client so I'm not stressing or down.  I'll just wait until Monday and see what the day brings.
