Task9.1 - Banners

Is 'banner motd" command useable in this task instead of "banner exec"?

The task didnt specifically mentionedabout "EXEC" process, but just mentioned 'logs into CLI" .

 

 


banner exec



To specify and enable a message to be displayed when an EXEC process is created (an EXEC banner), use the banner exec global configuration command.

 


banner motd



To define and enable a message-of-the-day (MOTD) banner, use the banner motd global configuration command.

  • i've configured a "motd" banner, since the exec banner is not always showing up:

  • I think this may be another case of having to read into the subtleties of the lingo used in the task.

    Task 9.1 states 'when a user logs into the CLI the message should be displayed'

    The MOTD banner is displayed BEFORE a user logs in, whereas the EXEC banner is displayed when a user logs into the CLI

    So I THINK the SG using the EXEC banner is correct in terms of the task requirements, but using the MOTD banner does seem like a better solution to resolve this type of situation as presumable the 'legal department' would want the message presented before anyone attempts to login to the device :-)

    Anyway, a useful task for playing around with the various banner types.

  • Thank you  dam0c0nr0y for your clarfication

    What about "banner login" ? is it valid too ? where it will appear in your example ? after or before promoting for password ?

  • i try Banner login...i think this is the right one but u have to have login for it to work

    i dont remember it worked in the console

    when a user logs into ==> does this mean before or after?

    i think this is one question u ask the proc for it..but i think MOTD would be the most right thing
