vRealize Operations Passwords

When setting up a new vRealize Operations 6.6 environment (using the vRealize Operations Manager Initial Setup wizard) the password is not accepted despite apparently meeting the complexity requirements.

The criteria stated are that passwords must:

  • Be at least eight characters long
  • Be different from your username
  • Contain lowercase, uppercase, numeric, and non-alphanumeric characters

Cause

It appears that full stop and question mark do not count as the “non-alphanumeric” characters required.

Solution

Choose another password which includes a different, acceptable, non-alphanumeric character such as the exclamation mark.
