Severity: 3-Major


tmsh is now the default shell for AWS VE. Documentation revised to remove "tmsh" from all tmsh command line entries.


No tmsh commands can be executed. Without the ability to revise the AWS virtual machine (VM) password using tmsh, the VM can not be used.


Log in to an SSH session with the AWS VE. Initiate any tmsh command by starting the entry with "tmsh." The result is a syntax error.


Omit the word "tmsh" from command entries.

Fix Information

Documentation revised to clarify tmsh command entries.
