esxi root user permission

Hi there, root user was changed from Administrator role, to a very privilage role. Is there a way I can rolback this action, because now I can't do any administration task.
Is there a way to change permission from other user, like dcui?

Thank you for the reply. I also saw that I have to change it using nano.
I can't access the ESXi Console:
-I hit Alt+F1
-Type unsupported, hit enter, but nothing ever happend
So I can't access the console.
Can you help me out with that?

Thanks for the follow up, now it ask me login and password. I imagine is Root and its password, right?
I can't get past unsupported mode, I enable both services and when I got to the console to try login, I log with root but it says I don't have authorization.

Well, now I know you can't mess around with root without having a backup user.
Thanks for your help!
