For information about ESXi 4.1 Tech Support Mode, see Using Tech Support Mode in ESXi 4.1 (1017910).

After completing any tasks that require the use of Tech Support Mode, all subsequent diagnostics would then be performed through the remote interfaces. Use of Tech Support Mode can be controlled by restricting physical access to servers, limiting access to the root password or disabling the feature entirely.

Administrators can disable or re-enable Tech Support Mode on each host by modifying advanced configuration parameters. Each time the setting for supporting Tech Support Mode is changed, you must reboot the host before the setting takes effect.
