Re: Does Aruba switch have motd banner?



Please use the exact banner motd code from my post.  It seems to look fine on the commandline, but scroll bars in the GUI.

Re: Does Aruba switch have motd banner?

I'm sorry I mis-read the comment:


"I don't see it on the GUI login screen though. If I remember when I did my test without the quote I saw it but not now with the quote..."


I thought you were saying the banner was missing entirely.

After using cjoseph's example I see that we're ignoring the whitespace on the right of each line and requiring scroll bars to see the full text.

Best regards,

Re: Does Aruba switch have motd banner?

Just an update on this bug. I got a reply from customer support saying that Engineering has fixed the banner alignment issue and display of it in the web UI. The fix will be integrated in next code release early this year.
