    DCUI will be black, white and gray. If you want the pretty yellow interface back, type export TERM=linux before DCUI.

    If you want a yellow/grey screen like the real deal type:
    #export TERM=linux
    #dcui
    tada!

    Thanks for this information. Took me forever to find this. I had seen a VMWare engineer open this up on one of my servers, but could not figure out how to get out, or access it. Now I know.

    I had to use
    export TERM=xterm
    then
    dcui
    in order to make it work properly.
    with the nice colored TERM=linux it seems not to like the F2 button making the remote dcui completely unusable.
