vic-machine utility provides a
debug command that allows you to enable shell access to the VCH endpoint VM, either by using the VM console or via SSH.

vic-machine create --debug option. The
vic-machine debug command allows you to log into and debug a VCH endpoint VM that you have already deployed. The

vic-machine create --debug option, see the section on
--debug in VCH Deployment Options.
