I was doing some changes in my VCSA 6.0 vCenter server and I wanted to copy some files from the VCSA appliance. Hope you know that we are mostly use WinSCP to connect to the vCenter server and copy files in and out from the appliance.
shell.set --enable True
Then you will get the shell prompt and type chsh -s “/bin/bash” then next time it will redirect you to the shell directly.
Note: If you need to revert it back to the Appliance shell use chsh -s /bin/appliancesh root and re-login to the appliance using ssh
