This video covers how to recover lost ESXi password using storage controller VM. For pre HXDP 3.5 cluster you can recover using SSH keys and for HXDP 3.5 and higher version you can recover using hxuser.

Hi Jalpa/Pragna Yeraballi,

We are currently using HXDP version 3.5(2g),we have lost the password for ESXI host & we followed the same procedure you have provided in the video 

1. Storage controller >> /opt/springpath/storfs-support/getEsxConnectionInfo.sh >> ssh hxuser@172.21.x.x   >>  password : EJ\"?id?M(87#9Ab      still it is not accepting password 

2. Storage controller >> /opt/springpath/storfs-mgmt-cli/getLocalNode.sh | grep IP >> ssh root@172.21.x.x -i /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key    after that you have mentioned that it will not asked for password directly it will logged into ESXI host,                          still it is asking for password
