  • 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.

    root/??

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