Please advice. Thanks

Re: UCSB, Blade server IP address & password issue

That IP address is assigned when ESXi is installed. It is likely saved on the boot LUN that ESXi was installed on.

 

There is no way to recover a forgotten root password in ESXi 6.0. You will need to re-install ESXi.

 

Changing a forgotten root password on an ESX/ESXi host (1317898)

ESXi 3.5, ESXi 4.x, ESXi 5.x and ESXi 6.x

Reinstalling the ESXi host is the only supported way to reset a password on ESXi.
