  • newbie trying vmware

    I am a newbie and I installed VM ware esx 4.0 on our server (hp proliant). The thing I would like to know is once I i nstalled the software and rebooted the server got to the grub screen and it said name of of our company and log in, I did this at the server it I tried to log in with the password that i put in for the root Administrator and it did not take.

    What am I doing wrong or what else is needed.

    Ok, you do know that you're at the console prompt right? Quite a bit of the admin is done via connecting to ESX using the client. As you can see on the logon screen you're looking at a IP is displayed. Visit that IP via a web browser and download the client. Once you've installed the client connect to the ESX IP address with whatever login credentials you specified at install.


    If you really don't remember the root password perhaps you may wish to reset it via the following
