Lockdown mode does not lock down machine

Details

The ESXi lockdown mode does not lock down the machine. It only prevents direct VMware vSphere client connections.

Solution

The lockdown mode, only applies to direct vSphere client connections. To ensure a complete lock down, you must set the advanced configuration option techSupportMode to False. This disables the unsupported technical support shell.
