Tech Support Mode has been disabled by the Administrator on ESXi 4.1

I would like to acknowledge the author of this very detailed guide by: 

Tech Support Mode (TSM) provides a command-line interface that can be used by the administrator to troubleshoot and correct abnormal conditions on VMware ESXi hosts.

To access the local TSM:

  1. At the main DCUI screen, press ALT+F1 simultaneously. This opens a virtual console window to the host.
  2. Provide credentials when prompted.Note: When typing the password, characters are not displayed on the console.

If ” Local Tech Support ” daemon does not running, you get ” Tech Support Mode has been disabled by the Administrator ” when accessing to the local TSM.
