BE6000M and ESXi root password not working

Just unboxed a new UCS C220 M5SX and I was trying to log into the host and the passwords that are documented do not work. I have tried the following with the root account. Cisco, Cisco123, Cisco1234, Password (lower and upper on the first character) and nothing is working. I am really hoping I do not need to waste my time and reinstall ESXi to get this working. Anyone run into this and found the right password?

The default is root/password and if it doesn't work your only option is to reinstall. There is no change in the default password for M5 server as I did couple of installation last month and was the same.

Thank you for the response. Unfortunately that is not working, but to confirm I tried "password" and "password." without the quotes with no luck. 

If its for VMware 

 

The default username is root

and the password password

 

 

If its for CIMC

 

Default  will be  admin and password

 

If you entered  to the CIMC configuration through console you might have changed the default password.  in that case Use the password you set from CIMC configuration and username admin.

CIMC is working with the password I set, but the root password of password is not accepted and I can't change that since I am not able to access. I guess I am going to have to reinstall.
