Setup Expedition on VMware Workstation, exported to ESXi, web ui says password is wrong?

As title says, I had VM running and working in Workstation, updated, configured, etc. then exported to OVA and deployed to ESXi, but now the web UI says my passwords are incorrect. How can I reset the admin and other account passwords from CLI?

Are you sure you didnt UPGRADE the OS? It should stay in 16.04 not 18.04... The system upgrade will break Expedition....

I also have the same problem with exporting OVAs for eventual use with vSPHERE

 

Any guidance would be appreciated...

if you have access to the CLI you can try this:

 

expedition@Expedition:~$ mysql -uroot -ppaloalto
MariaDB [(none)]> use pandbRBAC
MariaDB [pandbRBAC]> select * from users\G
MariaDB [pandbRBAC]> update users set password = '$2y$10$Nk2/jJmmirfgfLLPEGJ7.erkiaVCgRGUZvSPi5wG/gg8SqYFBvYPO';
