Overview

Uplogix Local Managers can display two banners:

  • welcome banner - displayed after successful authentication.
  • login banner - displayed prior to login.

By default, no banners are defined.

Setting Banners

You can define banners to display any required legal information or operational notes with the config system banner editor command. The login parameter allows you to edit the banner that is displayed before login. The welcome parameter allows you to edit the banner that is displayed after login. Enter the desired text, which may use more than one line. When you are finished, use the exit command to leave the editor and return to the main CLI.

[admin@UplogixLM]# config system banner welcome
Type 'exit' on a line by itself to exit
[config system banner welcome]# You are now logged in to UplogixLM.
[config system banner welcome]# exit

Do not use non-printing characters in banners. Spaces are considered printing characters.

Some SSH clients do not support the login banner.

You can verify the current banners with the show system banner command:

[admin@UplogixLM]# show system banner
Welcome Banner:
You are now logged in to UplogixLM.
Login Banner:
No login banner set.
In this example, there is no login banner set.

Clearing Banners

To clear a banner, use the config system banner command with either the login or the welcome parameter. Type exit without entering any other text.

Use the show system banner command to verify that you have cleared the banner.

[admin@UplogixLM]# config system banner welcome
Type 'exit' on a line by itself to exit
[config system banner welcome]# exit

[admin@UplogixLM]# show system banner
Welcome Banner:

Login Banner:
No login banner set.

If the Local Manager is managed by an Uplogix Control Center, banners can be configured through the Uplogix web interface.
