You create a super user account to manage the vSphere infrastructure. The super user account has the same privileges as the administrator@vsphere.local account. After the bring-up process is complete, the password for the administrator@vsphere.local account is rotated to a random password, but the password for the super user account does not change. You can, thus, login to SDDC Manager with the super user name and password without having to look up the rotated password for the administrator account.


  1. Type a user name and password for the super user.

    The password must be between 8 and 20 characters long and must contain at least one each of the following:

    • lowercase letter

    • uppercase letter

    • number

    • special character such as ! or @
