Banner on 2610 (R.11.54)

Hello,

I try to configure a banner on Procurve 2610 (R.11.54).

But I've got the following error:

[String Text for Banner too long. Allowed length is 640.]

I'm surpised, because it's short for "sexy" banner and following release notes explain:

"The size of the login banner page increased from 320 to 3070 characters. The default banner displays
product registration information; the copyright splash is no longer displayed.

Is this a bug ?

Thank you

Hi Gerhard,

The following commands and banner were used:

banner motd X

#####################################################################
# #
# ASCII ART LOGO WITH FOLLOWING CHAR: #
# #
# | _ < ( ) \ / V #
# #
# #
# #
# #
# #

I don't think the content of banner is a problem and there are 1470 characters (less than 3070)...

Why the switch doesn't accept more than 640 charcters ?
And the command "banner exec" isn't usable (ip ssh is well active) ?

Other idea ?

Hi Patrick

Well Since 640 is less than 3070. It might just be :).

I just gave it a try just using numbers. I got the same thing. You might wanna give HP a ring and ask.

Now for banner exec ... I do not remember seeing that on a 2610. I have seen it on a 5400 though.

Hi Gerhard,

I'm disapointed with this type of switch / firmware.

Long banner and EXEC Banner (SSH post login banner) are basic stuff.

Thank you for your help :)

Hello Folks,

I've got a response for HP support.

The switch allows up to 640 characters.
The 3070 limit is an error in the release notes.

More information in this manual (page 2-9):

Problem is "solved"...
