1.3.3 Set the 'banner-text' for 'banner motd'


This MOTD banner is displayed to all terminals connected and is useful for sending messages that affect all users (such as impending system shutdowns). Use the no exec-banner or no motd-banner command to disable the MOTD banner on a line. The no exec-banner command also disables the EXEC banner on the line.
When a user connects to the router, the MOTD banner appears before the login prompt. After the user logs in to the router, the EXEC banner or incoming banner will be displayed, depending on the type of connection. For a reverse Telnet login, the incoming banner will be displayed. For all other connections, the router will display the EXEC banner.


Configure the message of the day (MOTD) banner presented when a user first connects to the device.
hostname(config)#banner motd c
Enter TEXT message. End with the character 'c'.
