Thanks Andy!
I did have to manually start the cygwin SSHD service and I did not get any
credentials error when I started up. It logged me in as watcher(so its
configured to that I guess when vm starts up).
When I checked for root account couldnt find one in /home directory. Also
the /etc/passwd files are different when compared between vmhost win2003
machine and the new vmguest?(vcl01,which starts up when I make a
reservation).
Below are the list of accounts:
Administrator watcher kaharris maestro sshd cyg_server Guest mjohnston
SUPPORT_388945a0

hope this info helps.. !
Thanks!
