When appliance mode is enabled for a tenant, access to the Advanced shell (bash) is removed, and the system root user cannot log in to the device by any means, including the serial console. When appliance mode is then disabled, Advanced shell access and root login are still disabled.
Cannot access the Advanced shell or log in as root user when appliance mode is disabled. This is intended functionality.
-- Enable appliance mode for a tenant. -- Disable appliance mode for the same tenant.
Log in to the tenant via tmsh and run: modify sys db systemauth.disablerootlogin value false modify sys db systemauth.disablebash value false
