This was shared by @DuncanYB earlier today and it is so awesome so I had to re-share.
Anyone that works with VMware can probably tell you that application vendors love to point the finger at the hypervisor whenever there is an issue. Invalid password error – oh it must be because you are running it in a VM (I kid you not this has happened to me – almost happened again today!).
Anyway, thanks Duncan this made my day!
