vcenter 6.5 lost passowrd

I just installed vcenter 6.5 and set a local administrator@vsphere.local account with password.  I am unable to log in.  It says invalid.  I know for a fact i recorded the pw correctly.  Is there a way to create a user account for the web UI log in from the virtual appliance?

No, if you've just installed it's quicker to re-install again and remember the password and document, write down.

Do you have VCSA?

Or vcenter in Windows?
I remain attentive to your comments.

I had a few post install items configured and resetting it was just as quick as reinstalling.
