About the appliance login banner
The NetBackup appliance provides the ability to set a text banner that appears when a user attempts to log on to the appliance. You can use the login banner to communicate various kinds of messages to users. Typical uses for the login banner include legal notices, warning messages, and company policy information.
The NetBackup Administration Console also supports a login banner. By default, when you set a login banner for the appliance, the banner is not used by NetBackup. However, during the appliance login banner configuration you can choose to propagate the banner to NetBackup so that it appears whenever a user attempts to log into the NetBackup Administration Console.
Table: Appliance interfaces that support the login banner describes the appliance interfaces that support the login banner. Once a login banner is set, it appears in each of the appliance interfaces that support it, such as the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu and SSH. However, the login banner can be optionally turned on and off for the NetBackup Administration Console.
