By default, the administrative password for the NSX Manager and NSX Edge appliances expires after 90 days. However, you can reset the expiration period after initial installation and configuration.
- Use a secure program to connect to the NSX CLI console.
- Reset the expiration period.
You can set the expiration period for between 1 and 9999 days.
nsxcli> set user admin password-expiration <1 - 9999>Note: Alternatively, you can use API commands to set the admin password expiration period.
- (Optional) You can disable password expiry so the password never expires.
nsxcli> clear user audit password-expiration
