I've had a google walk over how to set the SSH MOTD login banner for my cDOT 8.2.3 filers, and near as I can tell (per bug 489882), this isn't a feature that is yet implemented in cDOT. The weird thing is, my filers actually do have an MOTD that appears after you log in via SSH. I'm not sure how that got set, as the filers were set up before I started at this company.
I need to change the MOTD, and I'll be darned if I can figure out how to do it. Is there some place I'm just not looking to get the information I need? Thanks all!
Yep, sec login banner isn't a thing in 8.2.3. Someone must have hacked a way around, because there's definitely a login banner there. Maybe it's something they got at via the system shell? Also, the CN1601 and CN1610 switches also have those login banners ... I'll have to investigate how you go about changing the MOTDs there as well. Not like literally anyone needs to log in to those switches for any reason most of the time, but I still gotta change those MOTDs. Oy vey.
Good input, everyone! I ended up popping into the systems hell and editing (or creating) /etc/ssh/ssh_banner on every node and monkeying around with VI until it worked. And THEN I saw everyone's feedback, of course. In any case, there's likely more than one way to skin a cat, and I bet everyone's solutions here would get the next person to the place they wanna be.
