Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: The terminal assumed all pods are Linux pods and did not account for Windows pods. Consequence: The terminal would not work with Windows pods as it defaulted to sh command. Fix: The terminal should detect the pod type and change the command accordingly. Result: The terminal detects if a pod is Windows and changes the command as necessary.

Terminal works on Console

Set up ocp 4.7 cluster containing windows node with payload 4.7.0-0.nightly-2020-10-15-011122.
Create a windows workload on the cluster, check the pod's terminal, it's using windows terminal cmd. 
The bug is fixed.
