Cisco SFR Session – Cannot Exit To Command Line

Problem

This tripped me up once before, and I didn't document it! Normally if you have a console session open with your FirePOWER Module, (that you opened with a 'session sfr' command), then you can just quit, and exit back to the firewall by typing 'exit', like so;

ciscoasa# session sfr
Opening command session with module sfr.
Connected to module sfr. Escape character sequence is 'CTRL-^X'.

> exit
Remote card closed command session. Press any key to continue.
Command session with module sfr terminated.

But if you have a console session open with the module, (that you opened with a 'session sfr console' command), then typing exit simply dumps you back at the login screen!

ciscoasa(config)# session sfr console

Solution

Well that's annoying! You need to log back into the SFR module, then exit with the following key sequence;

Press 'Ctrl+Shift+6'

SFR escape sequence

Then release those keys and press 'x'
