Only one administrator can be logged in to an active RLM CLI session at a time. However, you can open a separate console session while the RLM CLI session is active. In addition, you can open two SSH sessions through the console session.
If you have an RLM CLI session open, you or another administrator with privileges to log in to the RLM can close your RLM CLI session and open a new one. This is convenient if you logged into the RLM from one computer and forgot to close the session before moving to another computer, or if another administrator wants to take over the administration tasks from a different computer.
If a session is already initiated, you will see the following message: User username has an active CLI session. Would you like to disconnect that session, and start yours [y/n]?
If you enter Y, the session owned by username is disconnected and your session is initiated. This action is recorded in the RLM’s system event log.
If the username account for the storage system is password protected, you are prompted for the password. Enter the storage system password. When you are successfully connected, you see the RLM prompt.
The RLM prompt is created by adding “RLM” in front of the hostname of the storage system. For example, if your storage system is named "toaster", the storage system prompt is toaster> and the prompt for the RLM session becomes RLM toaster>.
