I'm studying for the RHCSA and am trying to wrap my mind around a seemingly basic concept: terminal consoles. I don't understand how/why RHEL systems make 6 terminal consoles (
/dev/ttyN) available for use. If I'm managing a server (or workstation for that matter), under what circumstances would I want to hop between terminals (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F2)?
Wouldn't I just be connected to one terminal and work from there?
