KB-1035: Using customized message of the day
Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl
UNIX computers have a file (/etc/issue) to greet users when logging in. Linux uses two separate files for this purpose, one for local users in /etc/issue and another for network users in /etc/issue.net
The Group Policy
Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > Interactive Logon: Message Text
maps to the local user message of the day (motd) on Linux computers. If you wish the message of the day to also map to the network user motd, create a symlink to map /etc/issue to /etc/issue.net.
