"Recovering" F5 from Appliance mode

When a device is activated with license that include App Mode the root user and all access to the BASH is being blocked.

In case the activation of the app mode was not wanted we need to install a different license without this feature and modify the DB to disable this mode, to do so just run the following command after installing the new key : 
(tmos)# modify /sys db systemauth.disablerootlogin value false
in case a key is yet to be changed you'll get an error :
01070356:3: Root Account feature not licensed.
To better secure the device it is recomended to keep it in this mode.
Enable this mode by running:
(tmos)# modify /sys db systemauth.disablerootlogin value true
