Esxi hardening

The lockdown mode is enabled “strict”. Esxi 6.7 host is not accessible from vcenter after reboot. Anyway to bypass lockdown mode without rebuild?

    In strict lockdown mode the DCUI service is stopped. If the connection to vCenter Server is lost and the vSphere Web Client is no longer available, the ESXi host becomes unavailable unless the ESXi Shell and SSH services are enabled and Exception Users are defined. If you cannot restore the connection to the vCenter Server system, you have to reinstall the host.
