Can't Connect to vCenter After Changing the ESX Service Console IP Address

-------------------------------------------------------------------
GIVE ROOT SSH ACCESS

Connect via VIClient

Create a user and add it to the "wheel" group

Reset Root user password to what it needs to be
-------------------------------------------------------------------
PERMIT ROOT LOGIN

SSH to ESX Host and login as new user
After connecting do the following:

su
(type root password)
vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config        <- This will open a file to be edited
Find the line that says "PermitRootLogin no"
hit the "i" key for insert
cursor to the line and change it to "PermitRootLogin yes"
hit "esc" to exit insert mode
Save your changes type ":wq" and hit enter

(To make canges work you must restart the sshd service)
/etc/init.d/sshd restart
