How to quit SSH session by typing 'exit' in ONTAP

Just a little trick to remove annoyance for new NetApp admin.

Usually when we want to terminate a SSH session on ONTAP you type Ctrl+D as typing 'exit' returns with message to press 'Ctrl+D' to exit. It's perfectly fine and there isn't any harm as that gracefully closes the session but as most of us are more use to of typing 'exit' to terminate the session, find it odd. 

So for those who prefer typing 'exit' to close the session can do so by enabling telnet.distinct.enable option.
Default setting for this option is off which in effect mirrors telnet and console session but if you don't use this feature, which I believe most of us don't, can enable it and feel more at home.
