vSphere 6 – Edit the vCenter Single Sign-On Password Policy

I have come across a message in vCenter with regards to SSO domain administrator password expiring in 10 days. The default value for “Maximum lifetime” is 90 days; change this value to edit the password expiry. I entered 365 so the password will expire in one year but if you want to make sure that SSO domain admin password never expires, enter “0” (zero) or a very high value like “99999”.

To get to this screen, click Administration > Single Sign-On > Configuration
