Reset root account password without restarting esxi host (KB#00095)

Overiew

Generally, if you forgot root account password then you reboot the appliance and then enter grub menu by pressing key 'e' during the boot and then you put the keywords rw init=/bin/bash in the last of first line then you press F10 to save and continue for temp login with root account.

But what if you can't reboot esxi host and have to reset the root password as well. In other words, what if you want to reset root account password without rebooting it anytime.

Sounds interesting, isn't it?

Solution

I will update this post by next weekend. Stay tuned guys!!



Thank you
