    As long as the ESXi host is managed by vCenter Server, you have some options to reset a host's root password.
    You can either do this using Host Profiles (depending on the license you have), or - what I prefer - using a PowerCLI script like this:

    #Connect to vCenter
    Connect-VIServer <vcenter-name>
    
    #Connect to esxcli
    $esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMhost <esxi-host-name> -V2
    
    
    #Define new password for root
    $arg = $esxcli.system.account.set.CreateArgs()
    $arg.id = 'root'
    $arg.password = 'NewPassword'
    $arg.passwordconfirmation = $arg.password
    
    #Set new password
    $esxcli.system.account.set.Invoke($arg)
