Goal

Sometimes, someone or some thing else is connected to the console of an active domain to which console access in needed.

Here we attempt to gain access to the domain A console shell on an E6900 from the master system controller, but someone or something else is already connected.
System Controller 'e6900-sca11-a-sc0':

    Type  0  for Platform Shell

    Type  1  for domain A console
    Type  2  for domain B console
    Type  3  for domain C console
    Type  4  for domain D console

    Input: 1

Connection refused, console busy
Connection closed.

We then try to connect to the domain A console shell from the platform shell of the master SC but have the same result.
System Controller 'e6900-sca11-a-sc0':

    Type  0  for Platform Shell

    Type  1  for domain A console
    Type  2  for domain B console
    Type  3  for domain C console
    Type  4  for domain D console

    Input: 0

Platform Shell

e6900-sca11-a-sc0:SC> console a

Connection refused, console busy
Connection closed.
e6900-sca11-a-sc0:SC>
