How To Reset Forgotten VMware ESXi Root Password With


Preview
8 hours ago

1. Boot your ESXi server from Ubuntu Live CD. After a while, the system installer will appear with the option to "Try Ubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu". Click on "Try Ubuntu" to load Ubuntu directly into RAM, without installing it on your hard drive.
2. After getting to the Ubuntu desktop, click on the Ubuntu icon in the upper left corner and search for GParted in the Dash. Double-click on GParted Partition Editor to launch it.
3. Now that we know that the partition which we need to mount is /dev/sda5, close GParted and open the Terminal.
4. In terminal, type "sudo -s" to gain root access and then mount the ESXi system partition with the following commands. After mounting, you'll see the state.tgz file that we need to unpack now.
5. Copy state.tgz to the /tmp folder, and then unpack the state.tgz file which contains another compressed archive named local.tgz. cp state.tgz /tmp cd /tmp tar xzf state.tgz ls.
6. Unpack the local.tgz file which has the /etc directory compressed in it. tar xzf local.tgz ls.
7. Go to the /etc directory and you can gain access to the shadow file which contains the password hash of ESXi root account.
8. Run the vi shadow command to open the shadow file in the vi editor. You'll find out that the password hash of the root account is surrounded by the first two colons.
9. Once you have removed the password hash, press ESC to return to the command mode. Type in :wq and press Enter. This will save your changes and exit the vi editor.
10. Re-pack the files and copy the modified state.tgz file back to the ESXi system partition with the following commands: cd .. tar czf local.tgz etc tar czf state.tgz local.tgz cp state.tgz /mnt/ umount /mnt.
