Changing the lockdown mode
You can use the Flex Appliance Console to change the lockdown mode on a Flex appliance. Note the following restrictions:
Lockdown mode does not block access to the remote management (IPMI) port. Veritas recommends that you set up your network to restrict access and only allow security administrators or the users that manage the physical hardware to use the port.
Only the default admin user can change the lockdown mode.
To change from enterprise mode to normal mode, you must first delete all WORM storage instances.
To change from compliance mode to enterprise mode or normal mode, you must first expire all data on the WORM storage instances, and then delete the instances.
If you have a multi-node appliance, make sure that all nodes are configured before you enable lockdown mode.
