Updated by JRivrain over 2 years ago

Motivation
----------

Currently There are several cases where we cannot switch to a [install shell](https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2755766#step/installation_overview/3) when we are in an [installation](https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2755766#step/installation_overview/6), however being able to switch to a console can be very useful.

Acceptance criteria
-------------------

select_console allows us to switch between install_shell and installation in all cases including [ssh remote install](https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2726222), [vnc remote install](https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2726366), [hyperv](https://openqa.suse.de/tests/2742726)

Suggestion
----------

- Make sure to enable ssh in bootloader on the guest
- Open another TTY on the remote controller, from which we open a new ssh session to the guest. This should work in all particular cases.

Further details
---------------

**This is a change in os_autoinst. select_console is a function in testapi.pm.**
The way to swith between consoles is:
select_console 'install-shell';
select_console 'installation';
