This section discusses to Access the Controller CLI.

To access the command line interface, either SSH (port 22) to the NSX Advanced Load Balancer Controller IP or cluster IP, or access the Controller via the console from an orchestrator such as vCenter. Some user accounts may default into Linux bash. For these accounts, enter the NSX Advanced Load Balancer shell by typing: shell

username@avi:~$ | shell
Similarly, to exit the NSX Advanced Load Balancer shell into Linux, type: bash
: > | bash
When jumping from Linux bash to the NSX Advanced Load Balancer shell, or from the NSX Advanced Load Balancer shell to Linux bash, you may return to the previous mode by typing: exit
username@avi:~$ | exit
Note:

While it is possible to directly access the CLI of a Service Engine, it is not recommended, and may only be used for basic troubleshooting. All configuration management must be done from the Controller.
