By default, vCenter Single Sign-On passwords for user accounts expire after 90 days. The vSphere Web Client provides a warning when a password is about to expire. You can reset an expired password from the vSphere Web Client.
About this task
In vSphere 5.5 and later, a user with an expired password is prompted to reset the password upon login. To reset passwords for earlier versions of vCenter Single Sign-On, see the documentation for that version of the product.
You must know the current, expired password corresponding to the user name.
- Go to the vSphere Web Client URL.
- When prompted, provide the user name, the current password, and the new password.
If you are unable to log in, contact a vCenter Single Sign-On system administrator for assistance.
