Issue:
User is logging into the Enterprise Management's (ENTM) endpoint using Endpoint Management (ACEM), going to Command Console and then executing the command:

host <HOST>

Subsequent commands are then executed on the ENTM's endpoint, not the endpoint he has just hosted to.
Resolution:
This is working as designed. 

Each command you execute is self-contained In other words you will return to the host you are logged in as. So you cannot host <HOST> and then execute another command on <HOST>. 

With scripts, you can host to another server and command following this will be executed on that host. 

The idea behind the ENTM/ACEM is that you go to (either directly, or via the "manage" link in Hosts with the World View section of the ENTM): 

http(s)://SERVER:PORT/acem/home.jsf 

...and log into the host you need to manage. 

There is no need to login to the ENTM's endpoint and then host <HOST> from there.
