Attempts to login to vRealize Orchestrator Control Center and VAMI :5480 fail when the root password is aged. However, SSH’ing as root continues to work.
By default, the password for the root account of the vRealize Orchestrator Appliance expires after 365 days.
This can be checked by running
chage -l root
You can increase the expiry for the root account by logging into the vRealize Orchestrator Appliance through an SSH client and running
passwd -x number_of_days name_of_account. If you want to increase the vRealize Orchestrator Appliance root password to infinity, run
passwd -x 99999 root.
In both vRO 7.x and 8.x, the steps are the same:
passwd -x number_of_daysnumber_of_days rootcommand.
passwd -x 99999 rootcommand.
