Because of the security implications of local (shell) access, normal H/OS users are only allowed to interact via the SOAP API. Even when logged in using secure shell (SSH), users are only allowed to run the cli command, which in itself run commands via the SOAP API.

The only way to directly execute UNIX commands, from a shell such as sh, is to enable login for the root user (the UNIX super user, with ID number 0).
