now travel shooting options is an interesting one.
on The first item lets you enable the yes excise shell, which is disabled by default. And yes, yes s I has a shell that gives you access to a command line interface.
You can access it by pressing old bless F one
and you can see that the shell does not come up.
That's because it is disabled by default. To enable it
press alter place F two to get back to the menu
and then hit Enter on the enable us X I shell. You should read on the right side off the screen that yes, excise shell is enabled.
Now, if you hit old plus f one again,
behold the years excise shell
You looking as route
with the same installation password
on we're in
Don't linger around in the dark shell. It's actually dangerous. Okay. And by the way, this is not a linen shell. Although it looks like it,
it does, however, supports on basic clinics commands, but it is not Lin expressed, so keep that in mind.
So let's get the hell out of here.
Type exit and then old plus F too.
This is better.
The second option lets you enable S S H.
If you want to have remote access to the s excitation, it is disabled by default as well. So if you want to enable it, just press enter
modify the time outs for years, ex I shell. And as a seIf service is,
let's talk about that.
There are two options. Actually, the availability timeout refers to the amount of time after which the S excise shell service turns back to the disabled state. Let me repeat this theory. Availability. Timeout refers to Theis Excise Shell service. Time out.
Second option is deep idle time out, which refers to the amount of time after which both the local and remote sessions are close to do two in activity that repeat this The ideal time out is the amount of time after which your session closes. So these are two different things
and you can see that both values are in minutes and they are set to zero by default, which means they never expire, which is not a good idea.
But let's leave them at the default hitters came
the modified issue. Why timeout? does what it says it is. Thea amount of time, after which the D. C Y session is closed.
It is set to 10 minutes by default,
which means if I were to leave the DC Weir right at this very moment than 10 minutes later, I will be kicked out to the log in screen, and I would have to authenticate again.
You can change that to any value lower than 1414 minutes,
so we'll just leave it to the default and hit escape
The restart management agents is used to restart. It is exciting. Management service is in case there is a manageability issue.
This option is only used for travel. Shooting purposes
do not mess around with this
view. System Locks lets you display and search in the log files for different years. Excite service is,
and you can do that by typing the number that corresponds to the log file.
For example, if I type them before
it will display the logs for the management agent called Host D,
you can scroll through using the up and down arrows
theon tricky or the space bar for rapid scrawling.
You can search for a word by typing forward slash, followed by the word
play around, if you will and when you're done. Hit Q. To escape
Now the few support information displays sensitive data about your years exciter, including the serial number for vendor support, the license type, the thumbprint, et cetera.
And finally, the most dangerous one is the reset system configuration. This will wipe out your configuration and loads the default configuration.
That's the D. C. A. Y. In a nutshell.
I hope you now feel comfortable navigating through it.
If you're not a fan of text based interfaces and you prefer graphical interfaces instead, then stay tuned as I show you around the graphical host client in the next video.
Thanks for watching.
