SSH and esxi ver6.0

Installed my first ver 6 esxi and noticed this warning message.
"remote access fro esxi local user account "root" has been locked 120 second affter 240 failed attempt"
I never made 240 attempt, Does the successful log on via desktop client cause this issue too?
How do I resolve this?

I do not believe it means 240 logon attempts, but an logon attempt has been made, and failed.
