Hi Kuldeep,

 

The default system accounts nutanix, admin and root all expire on a regular interval. Please see the following KB article around changing passwords: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=AHV-Admin-Guide-v6_6:ahv-password-change-ahv-host-t.html .

Hi Kuldeep,

 

If the alert id related to host password, please update the ncc to latest 4.6.5 as it is been resolved.

As long as for the nutanix account on the AHV host, you shouldn’t bother too much. I raised a call with support about it. Engineering is optimizing this check, so it would be more accurate...
