Description (partial)

The Nexus 1000v Admin user password in Deploy OVF Template properties indicates that the length of the password is 8 to 65535 characters.

The maximum password length for user account is only 64 characters, allowing more than the allowable characters length would result in confusion. Configuring password with length greater than 64 characters in OVF deployment would result in unknown password, as the resulting admin password configured is not blank, the first 64 characters or the last 64 characters.
