Configuring system banners

You can specify system banner messages in the CLI that will appear when users log in using either the CLI or the GUI.

You can enter up to 2,048 characters for each system banner. Currently, only text is supported. By default, no system banners are displayed.

The GUI displays the pre-login banner before you enter your user name or password:

The GUI displays the post-login banner after you enter your user name and password and select Log In:

You cannot finish logging in until you select I Agree.

The CLI displays the pre-login banner before you enter your user name. The CLI displays the post-login banner after you enter your password; you cannot finish logging in until you press a to accept the message.

To configure system banners:

config system global

set pre-login-banner "<string>"

set post-login-banner "<string>"

end

 

For example:

S548DF5018000776 # config system global

S548DF5018000776 (global) # set pre-login-banner "All systems will be unavailable,

> starting at midnight. Please exit all applications by then."

S548DF5018000776 (global) # set post-login-banner "Remember to exit before midnight."

S548DF5018000776 (global) # end
