I created a new VCSA from the latest iso available from Vmware. That went well, then tried to add a test host I am working with. Couldn't add it: password issue.
Used the same password to log in to the physical console multiple times, going back and forth. Changed it to a different one, no difference. Rebooted the host. No difference. Same issue with putty and WinSCP.
Could it have locked out the root account??
VCSA is on 6.7, host is at 6.0.
