Disable appliance mode from the CLI

You can disable appliance mode on the system controllers from the CLI. While it is recommended that you enable appliance mode most of the time, some tasks, such as restoring the default configuration or running the Setup utility, require use of the root account (which is unavailable in appliance mode).
  1. Log in to the command line interface (CLI) of the system controller using an account with admin access.
    When you log in to the system, you are in user (operational) mode.
  2. Change to config mode.
    config
    The CLI prompt changes to include
    (config)
    .
  3. Check whether the system is in appliance mode:
    show system appliance-mode state
    If appliance mode is enabled, proceed to disable it. Otherwise, skip the next step.
  4. Disable appliance mode:
    system appliance-mode config disabled
  5. Commit the configuration changes.
    commit
  6. Leave config mode.
    exit
