Symptoms


vpxuser-user vpxuser-user-account

Purpose

This article provides steps to modify the password of the vpxuser account. 

Resolution

vCenter Server creates the vpxuser account on each ESX host that it manages. The password for each vpxuser account is auto-generated when an ESX host is added. The password is updated by default every 30 days.
 
To modify default password settings:
  1. Connect vSphere Client to vCenter Server.
  2. Click Administration > vCenter Server Settings > Advanced Settings.
  3. Scroll to the parameter  VirtualCenter.VimPasswordExpirationInDays and change the value from the default.

    Note: For security reasons, VMware does not recommend increasing the value.
