sys security-console

Configure the serial management ports to drop a connection that is interrupted for any reason. If you enable serial port dropping, the serial management ports drop the connection for the following reasons: modem power failure, link disconnection, and loss of the carrier.

Serial ports interrupted due to link disconnection, power failure, or other reasons force out the user and end the user session. Ending the user session ensures a maintenance port is not available with an active session that can allow unauthorized use by someone other than the authenticated user, and prevents the physical hijacking of an active session by unplugging the connected cable and plugging in another.



The default is disabled if enhanced secure mode is disabled. The default is enabled if enhanced secure mode is enabled.
