our Avocent terminal servers establish console access as telnet sessions - in this case, to vCMP Host. BIG-IP vconsole is itself a telnet session to vCMP Guest. So, together, it's a nested terminal session and pressing '^]' shows outer session options (ie. Avocent) instead of inner (vconsole).
What is the graceful method to terminate vconsole and return to vCMP Host - killing telnet session (as question about vconsole utility) doesn't feel right?
BIG-IP 12.1.5 Build 0.78.6
Kernel 2.6.32-431.56.1.el6.f5.x86_64 on an x86_64
Console escape. Commands are:
l go to line mode
c go to character mode
z suspend telnet
b send break
t toggle binary
e exit telnet
